The Girl from Revolution Road, Paperback / softback Book

The Girl from Revolution Road Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Based on Ghazaleh Golbakhsh's experience as an Iranian immigrant growing up in New Zealand, these essays range from a childhood in war-torn Iran, including the trauma of a night spent in prison as a six-year-old, to learning English so she could make friends, to dating in the days of Corona.

This is about growing up as a young woman torn between her immigrant roots and her desire to be like everyone else. The humour is sometimes offset with the more sombre reminder of the racism that has always existed in this country, from misguided quips to more serious stories of harassment.

The impact of recent world events shows that, more than ever, marginalised voices are needed in our cultural discourse.
