One Summer in My Life: A Memoir in Short Stories - 5097


Pickup available at Bookstore

Usually ready in 4 hours

How do you chronicle a life? Manijeh Badiozamani tells of her life in a series of short stories that offer glimpses of a life lived in two cultures, rich in friends, ventures, and love. Manijeh Badiozamani grew up in Tehran, Iran before moving to the U.S. with her husband over 50 years ago. She is a keen observer of life and easily laughs at her own miscues as she deftly straddles two different cultures. "This collection of invariably amusing and often heartwarming experiences is like a treasure chest one discovers and opens, and invariably finds a rare gem here or a small trinket there. But the discoveries are always rewarding. The stories range over time and are often told with a gentle irony that will both amuse and enlighten. Each story stands alone, but together they describe a life’s journey full of perception, empathy, and great humor." —Dr. Mark David Welton, Professor Emeritus, United States Military Academy at West Point.
