Back in his cell Isaac thinks of Reza and the thousands of revolutionaries like him - men and women who thought they were part of something big, much bigger than their daily lives - who thought they were changing the course of history. And here they are, having replaced crowns with turbans.
— From Septembers of Shiraz by Dalia Sofer, a wonderful book The Gotham Gal suggested I read on our vacation. It’s about Iran after the Shah left.
