The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay: An American Family in Iran

Ordinary. Most of what I’ve read about Iran has come from periodicals and focused on troubled politics of one form or another. Thanks to reading Hooman Majd’s book, The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay, I have more impressions about ordinary life in that country. Following many years living in New York, journalist Majd decided to bring his Wisconsin-born wife and newborn son to live for a while in the country of his birth. What I enjoyed most about this book was the everyday joy with which they engaged with others, and the skill with which Majd writes about their experiences. Readers interested in learning more about Iran are those most likely to enjoy this book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Ministry of Guidance from
