We read this together in the MMD Book Club last January, and so enjoyed chatting with Kamali about her work. In 1953 Tehran, a young man failed to meet his betrothed in a Tehran square. Sixty years later and half a world away, the woman, now grown old, is about to discover why. This sweeping love story spans 60 years and two continents, taking the reader between contemporary New England and 1953 Tehran, thoroughly immersing the reader in the volatile political climate of 1950s Iran.

The Book of Longings

Our narrator for Kidd's newest novel is Anna, only daughter to a prosperous family, educated, and betrothed to another man when her attention is captured by a carpenter. The carpenter's name is Jesus, and Kidd imagines how they form a friendship and wed. As Jesus begins to explore and pursue his calling, let me tell you: whatever you're expecting Kidd to do with her audacious premise, this is not it. The vast majority of the book's action takes place during the years when we have no record of Jesus' life. Don't miss the author's note, where Kidd explains why she took creative license to make Anna his partner. More info →
