Darius works at the local tea emporium, and calls himself a "fractional Persian" because his mother is Persian, while his father is a blonde German, referred to as the Übermensch. He is bullied by others in high school, and really only has a single friend, who happens to be Persian. When his maternal grandfather is diagnosed as terminal, the family heads for Iran to say goodbye, where Daryoush becomes fast friends with Sohrab. The development of their friendship, his family and cultural dynamics, and the direct manner in which author Khorram deals with childhood depression are the highlights of the novel. ( )

I listened to this on audio and it was an absolute pleasure. I love how the main character related to everything via Star Trek and tea. Quirky yet full of depth and skillfully written. ( )

diverse teen/adult fiction (Fractional Persian/Persian-American deals with clinical depression, visits his Zoroastrian grandparents in Iran, makes friends with Baha'i neighbor. Lots of talk about tea, and Star Trek, and Tolkien).

character-driven novel with realistic portrayal of how depression affects some people, also rich in cultural details. There is some LGBTQA interest (he seems attracted to his new Iranian friend, but doesn't explore or talk about or act on those feelings), but this is more a story about a person connecting with his roots and his family and learning to talk to his dad about his depression; it is not a love story.
Parental note: Penises come up in conversation after other boys observe that his is uncircumcised in the locker-room, and the main character refers obliquely to his refraining from going "number three" in his grandmother's house. There is a joke about "hel/Hell" and "damming/damning," and another joke about literal dog "shit." ( )

One of the most realistic and beautiful family novels I've ever read. I'm drinking tea with cardamom as I write, inspired by tea-drinking Persians. I love Darius and his Darius-isms. I love Adib Khorram's humor and sensitivity. I learned so much about Persian culture. The characters are so real, I felt I would know them if I met them, that I'd like to know and meet them. For me, that is the highest praise of a novel. Thank you, Adib Khorram, for Darius and his family, for the inclusion Star Trek and Lord of the Rings (I'm a fan!), his trip to Yzad, his relationship with Sohrab, his openness about depression (and your own in your Afterword), in fact, for everything you wrote. I loved being in Darius' world. You are a master storyteller. ( )
