The Girl from the Garden Read ´ 102 A suspenseful debut novel of desire obsession power and vulnerability in which a crisis of inheritance leads to the downfall of a wealthy family of Persian Jews in early twentieth century IranFor all his wealth and success Asher Malacouti the head of a prosperous Jewish family living in the Iranian town of Kermanshah cannot have the one thing he desires above all a son His young wife Rakhel trapped in an oppressive marriage at a time when a woman's. The Girl from the Garden is a story of a wealthy Persian Jewish family living in Iran at the beginning of the 20th Century It s of an account of women s cultural plight at that time Although these women were fed well and surrounded by monetary beauty their lives were ones of male servitude and oppression Only the conniving seemed to surviveThe author Parnaz Foroutan uses her own family s folklore as fodder for this beautifully written novel Foroutan stated that as her family members aged the family stories changed She won t call this historical fiction as the sources became unreliable This reader is appreciative that she chose to use the folklore in whatever state of truth in fiction It made a fine novelThe story is told as memories of the family s only surviving daughter Mahboubeh She is living in Los Angeles ruminating over her mother who died when she was a mere child No family member would explain explicitly how her mother died her father would only state that it was from the complications of womanhood After reading the novel that statement had a different meaning for me The novel has complicated names that started to trip me up at the beginning but I got the flow and after about 20 pages and found the names easily remembered Because Mahboubeh is elderly her ruminations ebb and flow through current life It took me a bit to understand that flow As a result this is a novel that does take careful reading Warning don t read while tired I highly recommend this novel because Foroutan s writing is beautiful and the story captures a time and place in history that is incredibly interesting
