The Konar and the Apple: Fun, Beauty, and Dread—From Ahwaz to California by Babak Hodjat (Book Review #1370)

Advertisements

‘The Konar and the Apple’ is a memoir of Babak Hodjat’s journey from when he was a child living in Iran during the revolution of Iran in 1979. He travels to Japan and lives there in his teens before moving to the United States, marking a firm stand in the world.

I enjoyed reading about Hodjat’s experience as a boy growing up in post-revolutionary Iran. Seeing his perspective on life from the beginning and as he came of age was interesting. The added humor in the content truly lifted up the experience and added to the enjoyment of the read.

Babak writes with a certain penmanship that you rarely see in the independent publishing world. His style of approach and detailed description narrative brings this book alive.

I recommend this book to memoir fans.
