Jasmin Darznik

Jasmin Darznik discusses her work in 2018 Jasmin Darznik (born c. 1970s) is an Iranian-born American writer. She is the ''New York Times'' bestselling author of three books, ''The Bohemians'', ''Song of a Captive Bird'', a novel inspired by the life of Forugh Farrokhzad, Iran's notorious woman poet, and ''The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother's Hidden Life,'' which became a ''New York Times'' bestseller. A ''New York Times Book Review'' "Editors' Choice" and a ''Los Angeles Times'' bestseller, ''Song of a Captive Bird'' was praised by ''The New York Times'' as a "complex and beautiful rendering of [a] vanished country and its scattered people; a reminder of the power and purpose of art; and an ode to female creativity under a patriarchy that repeatedly tries to snuff it out." ''The Bohemians'' was selected by ''Oprah Daily'' as one of the best historical novels of 2021. Darznik's books have been published in seventeen countries.

She is the chair of the MFA Program in Writing at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Provided by wikipedia
