"SAFFRON SKY [is] a new kind of immigrant memoir. Self-assured, self-centered in an inspirational way, this is a memoir with an American message: Alienation itself can be turned to good effect, from liability to opportunity. Speaking of 'the immigrant's doom,' Asayesh declares in the same breath the need 'to fashion for myself a destiny different from that of my peers.' An American manifesto, if ever there was one."Asayesh, Gelareh is the author of 'Saffron Sky A Life Between Iran and America', published 2000 under ISBN 9780807072110 and ISBN 0807072117.
