the people with no camel
a novel
"The People With No Camel" weaves two journeys of freedom: a ten year old girl escapes Iran in 1981 with her family, due to the heavy persecutions they face as Baha’is, carrying nothing but three little handbags, new identities, and their Faith. The novel then takes a turn. The girl has become a woman, and the narrative shifts into parable. Infused with Persian mythical characters, the woman’s quest to save her dying forest turns into her own spiritual journey – the search for ultimate freedom.
