Loved the book, however the paper quality of the cover was a little strange. Colours looked washed out and faded. Maybe just a bad run but doesn't affect the story line at all. Delivery was super fast. Gotta love amazon for that.

This book was AMAZING! I'd never read any of her books before, but after reading Moonlight on the Ave. of Faith, Gina Nahai has become my favorite author. She writes beautifully descriptive sentences that just seem to captivate. I'd definately recommend this book to anyone looking for a book to curl up in a hammock with!

I, fortunately, encountered with this book for my Jewish History class. although i have to write a 10 page paper, this book is, by far, the best book I have ever read in my whole life. It affected me so deeply, I found myself crying when the pages were over.. Nahai....she's just great!

Format: Paperback
Looking for works of fiction by contemporary Iranian authors, I chanced upon Gina Nahai's novel quite by accident. And while I was not tremendously drawn in by the blurb on the back cover, reading the first two pages proved my first impressions wrong. This book is a phenomenal example of modern magical realism found in a society that one would normally not associate with that genre. But moreover, it really brings to light the plight of two groups of people: Iranian jews confined to the ghettos in their own country, and Iranian exiles forced to begin a new life in the United States. Nahai is able to expertly weave the history of her homeland with the fantastic, but does so in a way that is both easy and enjoyable to read.

Iran-born Gina B. Nahai pulled me into her lyrical world with her first book, Cry of the Peacock. N.B. Although each book stands on its own merits, I heartily suggest that you read Cry of the Peacock first. Her magical realism is reminiscent of the work of Isabel Allende and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
The author probes issues of Iranian Jewish life, exile, fate, motherhood and more in this incredible novel!

Format: Hardcover
This is one of my favourite novels. Gina Nahai has often been compared to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and in many ways this comparison is appropriate, but Nahai's 'magic realism' -- her metaphors, symbols and moods -- are gentler and less deliberately strange than those of Marquez. The ability to fly, dreams which spill into the world, the reversal of night and day -- all these (and other) wonders seem natural to the background of the story, especially in the early sections, which are set in the Tehran Ghetto. I suppose that writers like Marquez and Nahai, if they really have anything in common, share the tendency to write not about how the world really is, but about how it sometimes feels, if such a distinction can be made. The Tehran of Nahai's novel has all the magic of Eastern Fable, but it is not a whimiscal place. There is dust and disappointment as well as wonders. There is a painful voyage of discovery across Turkey and beyond. Nahai is perfect at telling a complex and human tale in glittering prose. She is a beautiful woman and a beautiful writer.

Format: Paperback
The first voice heard in this epic novel, is that of Lili, eighteen and haunted by her motherless past. Her mother, Roxanna the Angel, was "once a young woman with watercolor eyes and translucent skin...she could stop the world with her laughter.." and most importantly, "had been so light and delicate, so undisturbed by the rules of gravity and the drudgery of human existence, she had grown wings, one night....and flown into the star-studded night of Iran that claimed her." Lili was five when she saw her mother grow wings and disappear from her life only to return when Lili is eighteen.
Nahai's spellbinding imagery and vocabulary capture readers into the world of Iran and into the life of Roxanna the Angel who was destined to run, before she was even conceived. We readers enter the world of characters such as Shusha the Beautiful, Miriam the Moon, Alexandra the Cat, and Mercedez the Movie Star...where sunflowers can light up a person's existence and the sorrows of destiny and history will hold you captive forever.
I highly recommend this to everyone who likes GREAT books!
