A realistic and heartfelt depiction of a young woman at a crossroads wondering 'What s next?' Eslami s debut deftly limns a young woman s exploration of her roots, her attempts to understand her father, and how, to her own surprise, she finds a way to navigate both the expectations of her parents and her own burgeoning desires. "

With genuine warmth, Elizabeth Eslami explores those fragile in-between times of our lives. She does so with compassion and honesty and with a wry yet gentle humor that had me laughing out loud. Bone Worship is a treasure, and Eslami is a writer to keep your eyes on. --David Haynes, author of The Full Matilda"

Wildly original, Bone Worship is a real find. A superbly cranky American daughter and her impossible, mysterious Iranian father are the fabulous characters populating this wonderful novel. At once comic and serious, unpredictable at every turn, with a cross-cultural family drama that cracks through old notions. --Joan Silber, author of The Size of the World and Ideas of Heaven"

The novel is full of wonderfully drawn characters, especially Jasmine's awkward, gruff father. And there are some lovely stories about the father's childhood....This debut's real strength lies in its treatment of the Fahroodi family's complex relationships and of Jasmine's journey into womanhood. --Evelyn Beck"

In a voice at once acerbic and lyrical, Eslami deftly navigates the choppy waters of a cross-cultural father-daughter relationship bowing beneath the strain of post-grad ennui. From the streets of Tehran to the backroads of Arrowhead, Georgia, Bone Worship gnaws and sings. --Megan Brothers, author of Debbie Harry Sings in French" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
