Résumé :

The 1970s were the end result of half a century of Westernization in Iran. When the Shah was overthrown and the Ayatollah rose to power in 1979, Aria's idyllic life skidded to a halt. As the surreal began to invade the mundane, with family friends disappearing every day and resources growing scarce, Aria found himself torn between being the man of the house and being a much needed source of comic relief. His antics shone a bright light for his family, showing them how to escape, if only momentarily, the grief and horror that a vengeful revolution brought into their lives. Aria Minu-Sepehr takes us back through his explosive youth, into the heart of the revolution when a boy's hero, held up as the nation's pride, became a hunted man.
