Cementing her reputation as one of the most brilliant interpreters of the Iranian soul, novelist Zoya Pirzad offers a heartbreaking and tender story of a family haunted by separations. Edmond lives a quiet, respectable life, a stalwart of his Christian Armenian community. But when his daughter falls in love with a Muslim man, the scandal spreads like wildfire and Edmond is forced to choose between family and the expectations and prejudices of others. He makes his choice, but only time will reveal the true cost. Evoking Vikram Seths A Suitable Boy with its tapestry of hidden intimacies and social pressures, The Space Between Us weaves a poignant tale of human fallibility and grace.
