"This exquisite, deceptively quiet novel opens with a 12-year-old Iranian girl and her donkey, trekking down a desolate desert road. The girl, Talla, is already married; her shepherd husband, Sardar, walks beside her...The novel traces the couple’s lives over decades, as they struggle to start a family and find stability amid political tumult...Slowly, the narrative evolves from an intimate chronicle of Talla and Sardar’s provincial lives into a sweeping tour through early-20th-century Iran."
