Who do you think you are quite current topic and enjoyed the journey with the author especially the cultural differences.

The book is very short, and to me it looked more like a personal essay of the author's journey to find her father

A moving and well-told story by an author who has shown great courage in the course of her life.

As a bicultural human (Franco-British) I sympathise with Katharine Quarmby's text about her search for her Iranian birth father. It was an interesting story but in my view one which needed to be fleshed out. For example there were no details as to how she managed to trace him. Neither does she indicate whether her birth father was a staunch Muslim and if so was he a Sunny or Shia?How did he manage to come to Britain to see her? What occupation did he follow after his imprisonment? Did he have a sufficient income to permit him to travel abroad ? I guess that if she met him at St Pancras station he must have come via Eurostar from Paris.
The story raises many questions which are not answered.
