I Will Greet The Sun Again by Khashayar J. Khabushani


Gay's The Word Books of the Year 2023


A searing, sunlit debut about the powerful bonds that make and break one Iranian-American family.


Three young brothers leave Los Angeles in the dead of night for Iran, taken by their father from their mother to a country and an ancestral home they barely recognize. They return to the Valley months later, spit back into American life and changed in inexorable ways. Under the dazzling light of the California sun, our protagonist, the youngest brother, begins to piece together a childhood shattered by his father's violence, a queer adolescence marked by a shy, secret love affair with a boy he meets on the basketball court, and his ever-changing status as a Muslim in America at the turn of the new millennium.


Lyrical and open-hearted, I Will Greet the Sun Again is an unforgettable portrait of a family being torn apart, and a boy emerging from its ashes.




.'Exquisite, heart-breaking, incredibly beautiful. The whole narrative thrums with a bright, warm longing.' - Caleb Azumah Nelson, award-winning, bestselling author of Open Water 


'A gorgeous and wrenching debut from a writer I'll be following for many years to come.' - Catherine Lacey, author of Nobody is Ever Missing
