Auteur

Michael Carroll was born in England in 1935. He was educated at Harrow and Cambridge but spent much of his early life in India. While at Cambridge he travelled widely during his holidays. He is also author of Gates of the Wind, the story of his time spent on the Greek island of Skopelos.

Texte du rabat

An evocative and beautifully written account of Michael Carroll's journey to Iran that took him through the heart of the country -- from the Taurus mountains to the Gulf of Oman, during the years following the CIA-led coup of 1953. He explores countless mosques, tombs and palaces, goes in pursuit of an elusive dervish and bargains for Silk Road jade and carpets. The narrative is adorned with colorful episodes from Iran's long history and with amusing anecdotes that complement and enrich Carroll's travels in a country that has since changed beyond all recognition.
