The Luminous Heart of Jonah S. by Gina B. Nahai

This novel is not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.  It’s a family saga about Iranian Jews who are forced to leave their homeland when the Shah is overthrown. Wealthy in Iran, most of them eventually find success in Los Angeles, but often pay the price for financial gain.  There is a touch of surrealism in the novel, which does not add or detract from the books artistry but does help emphasize Nahai’s themes of family and lineage.
