Men, Countries and Gods, a novel by Dr Roghieh Dehghan
What if you know that somewhere along the road you have lost something, but you don't remember what? Solmaz doesn’t define herself only as a woman, Iranian and Muslim, but her world does — the world of men, countries and gods. From this contrast arises a sense of unease that fuels her ambition as a doctor and her tormenting search for a ‘home’ across cultures and countries, in England, Austria and Bangladesh. Obsessed with defying the grip of her past, she is blind to the two primal forces that will eventually shatter her house of cards.
