Tea and Conversation - Remembering Iran: A Conversation with Author Dalia Sofer
What happens when a real work of art shows up in a work of fiction? Join Dalia Sofer, author of the novel Man of My Time, and Freer and Sackler chief curator Massumeh Farhad for a discussion about the role a celebrated late 16th-century drawing by artist Riza Abbasi plays in the story, and about memories of life in Iran in the 1960s and 1970s. Set in Tehran and New York City, Man of My Time follows members of a family over several generations in order to explore variations of loss—of people, places, ideals, time, and self. It is a novel not only about family and memory but also about the intertwining of captor and captive, country and citizen, and individual and heritage.
