"Funny, incisive, frightening and eminently skillful."--New York Times The year is 1978, the tumultuous period leading up to the Iranian Revolution. While visiting Iran with her husband, Chloe Fowler is left to travel alone after he is summoned home. Much to her surprise, she finds herself drawn to the country, intoxicated by each unfamiliar sight that reminds her how far from home she really is, both comforted and unsettled by the group of foreign and Iranian physicians and their wives who take her in. However, her exhilaration crashes when odd, often frightening events begin to occur, exposing the darker side of this "colonial life." Chloe is about to be liberated from everything she has ever known--in a place where her ordinary notions of reason and reality will run headlong into a wall of intrigue, and where every idea she has about herself will be put to the test. Persian Nights follows Chloe on a voyage through the seductively inexplicable, and has all the qualities one expects from the gifted author of Le Divorce--the quirky, vivid atmosphere; the intelligent, humane voice; the compelling narrative. Once again, Diane Johnson delivers an entertaining novel of an appealing woman caught up in a mysterious world of change and intrigue.… (mer)

Chloe, a superficial adultery plotting housewife, adds little to the Persian Nights or Days during her short time in Iran.

The plot moves VERY slowly as she notices, then mostly ignores a starving fearful puppy under the bushes outside
her small and dirty new "villa." Worse still, with her group of friends, she meets a starving young girl who she leaves behind
instead of insisting that she be taken to the hospital where half of these friends are doctors. She does not even ask
her doctor lover, Hugh, to accompany her back to rescue the child.

In the next scene she is merely having tea with no mention of the girl.

After reading Diane Johnson's Le Divorce, I was expecting a witty tale with a
challenging plot. This book offers posturing in words and, sadly, lack of deeds. ( )
