For Shirin, being part of a perfect Persian family isn’t easy, especially while being a politically incorrect bisexual young Brooklynite. As she struggles through a break-up and her brother’s betrothal to a parent-approved Iranian, she sets off on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades. We journey with her as Shirin tries to decipher what went wrong, what steps to follow, and where to go from here.

“Akhavan achieves a near-perfect blend of satirical jaundice and naked delight in all things bohemian.” Donald Clarke, Irish Times
