Review

"[A] penetrating account of a series of journeys to Iran. . . . Jason Elliot is a travel writer of the old school: untethered to an itinerary, eager to be led astray, and as ardent an observer of the experience of traveling as of his destination."--"The New Yorker"
"An important look at the forces at play in a region starting to dominate the Middle East."--"The Star-Ledger" (Newark)
"Armchair travelers will enjoy moving with Elliot through both fabled cities and remote corners of Iran."--"The Christian Science Monitor"
"A work of profound thought, imagination, passion, and ambition. It should be widely read."--"The Guardian" (U.K.)
