AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The moving story of Bahram and Fereshteh (Persian for angel) growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution and the Iran-Iraq war. At its heart it is a love story between two adolescents at odds with the society in which they live and of the ways in which our lives can be changed forever by external events over which we have no control.' -- Publisher's blurb

'The New Angel is a narrative meditation on the philosophy of history. The story begins with a young man on the Gold Coast, Australia, called Bahram receiving a phone call from his cousin Abbas. The phone call leads Bahram to remember his adolescence in Iran and his romance with the beautiful and charismatic Fereshteh. As the adult Bahram drives south to Melbourne to confront Abbas, his recollections of the past intensify and reach an apocalyptic conclusion.' -- from Alizadeh's website.
