A feature interview with New York Times bestselling author, Jasmin Darznik. Jasmin is an Iranian-American writer, professor and former lawyer who burst onto the literary scene in 2011 with her acclaimed debut book, “The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother’s Hidden Life.” She followed it up with “Song of a Captive Bird,”  a novel inspired by the life of Forough Farrokhzad, Iran’s notorious woman poet, and her latest, just released, “The Bohemians.” Jasmin joins Jian to discuss her journey as an Iranian kid in denial growing up in California, learning – while a grad student at Princeton – of her mother’s harrowing life story, fighting ‘imposter syndrome’ while attaining success, and finding her voice as an internationally recognized writer. Plus the Roqe Team convenes to pore through Letters of the Week and Bahman Ghobadi.
