NEW YORK (Fall 2009) Forced to flee to the United States after the violent Iranian Revolution of 1979 at age eleven, author Angella M. Nazarian takes readers on a physical and emotional journey from past to present, from the exotic to the familiar, and from a country's political struggle to her own inner struggle in search of home, family and sense of belonging. Life as a Visitor chronicles Nazarian's difficult and triumphant journey to blend East and West. Incorporating prose, poetry, and stunning visuals, Nazarian creates a mosaic of thoughts, emotions and locations that allows readers an intimate and inside look at what life is like for an immigrant caught between two cultures.

"I don't think many Americans who had the good fortune to be born here, really understand what it is like to be forced to leave your home, your family and your history," says Nazarian. "Being a minority in your own country, in my case, being Jewish in a predominantly Muslim country, is strikingly different than being a minority in another country," she continues. Nazarian hopes her story will help readers discover that our commonalities are greater than our differences, and that we are a stronger country precisely because of our diversity.

In Life as a Visitor, Nazarian and her family travel to nearly twenty exotic locales, and it is during these travels that Nazarian begins to piece together her experiences of leaving Iran and adjusting to America and its western culture, and finding peace and herself along the way. Part travelogue, part introspective journal, Life as a Visitor will enthrall, inspire and engage readers of all backgrounds who feel like they live life as a visitor.
