    An Iranian Odyssey demystifies the current perception of Iran as an irrational and erratic pariah state. The film is not only a historical documentary. It is a relevant modern story that clearly tells the reasons behind the current stand-off between Iran and the West. Whenever she gave book presentations people were interested in her personal background as an Iranian-Armenian. They were fascinated by her family life in Iran, descriptions of her grandfather’s caravan trips to India from New Julfa, life in the beautiful Armenian quarter in Isfahan, the occupation of Iran by the Allied Forces in WWII, student.

    While travel in Iran might seem a daunting prospect, the days of the Iranian Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War are long past: Iran is stable, safe, and once again attracting travellers as it has done for long years. In this article, we recommend ten key books to read about Iran: ranging from ancient history to the contemporary situation. Green Apple Books Clement St., SF CA () Open daily from 10am to pm.
