This is the author's memoir of his young childhood in Iran, fleeing to England with his mother as a refugee and ultimately ending up in Edmond, Oklahoma, where his American classmates bully him. It is a melancholy string of memories and stories, connected by a battered sense of love and hope. Even as some of his memories are painful to read, there is an overall impression that you know Daniel is doing okay today. This book lovingly centers the humanity of the refugee. ( )

I listened to the audiobook narrated by the author himself and his narration was fantastic.
I LOVED this title. I found it poignant, funny, and witty.
The novel indeed goes off on MANY tangents, with the author telling stories of his early childhood in Iran, followed by living as a refugee in UAE and Italy, and eventually settling in OK where he grows up.
The author styles himself as a modern-day Sheherazade. The author weaves his story, like a patchwork rug metaphor he enjoys using, jumping in time, relating and drawing parallels between his memories with Persian history and folklore.
Lots of laugh out loud snippets of culture shock.
Themes: refugees, culture shock, loss, remembrances, family. ( )

brilliantly written from prospective of a child, peeling back layer after layer of self-protection, Nayeri shares his experience of becoming an Irani refugee in search of home. ( )

The voice of middle school student Khosrou is beautiful and heartbreaking. The story jumps from his present day Oklahoma classroom to his past life in Isfahan and occasionally takes a detour into myths of demons and palaces and magic carpets. It took me a while to get invested in the story but it is so worth persisting. I only hope that the students who read this will also read enough to get themselves hooked. This is a very memorable refugee story, one that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading. ( )

Hot damn, that’s some writing. Gorgeous, absolutely beautiful. Heartbreaking difficulties for young Khosrou/Daniel as an Iranian immigrant in Oklahoma. Poverty. Separation. Bullying. Abuse. If this doesn’t cause the adult reader to examine
notions of asylum seekers, immigration and poverty and to answer the call to serve others, I don’t know what will. ( )

It seems like only yesterday that I believed / there was nothing under my skin but light. / If you cut me I would shine. -- Billy Collins (approximately), "On Turning Ten"
The people of the world say that Khosrou is an idol worshipper / Maybe so, maybe so / But he does not need the world / And he does not need the people -- Amir Khosrou
I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world's finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, of all the blood they've shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened. --Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

When I was a kid in Isfahan, I would tell my mother that someday, I would build her a castle at the top of Mount Safeh. I could see it from my window. A castle in the sky. I didn't know that life would make a liar out of me. I'm sorry, Mom. I didn't forget. I just never managed it. I wrote you a book instead. I know it isn't even close.
