Endorsements for Love and Pomegranates

Love and Pomegranates deconstructs many of common myths about Iran. It has an in-depth content for those familiar with Iran, and it’s very accessible for those discovering the country for the first time. It’s a great read.”

—Reese Erlich, Peabody Award winer and author The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis

“Drawing on the arts, culture and education, this book accomplishes important intervention to counter the fear mongering and stereotypes of Iran that are prevalent today. Love and Pomegranates is a work of citizen cultural diplomacy.”

—Carl Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

“A true feast for the senses. Love and Pomegranates perfectly captures the beauty and splendor of Iran. This is a gorgeous book.”

—Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Tablet & Pen. 

“I have seen nothing so delightful and insightful about Iran since Terry O’Donnell sadly left us eleven years ago. This is a work to savor slowly, a rich assemblage of fine (Shiraz) wine and appetizers to be taken in any order and at any time.”

—Ambassador John W. Limbert, former hostage in Iran, Distinguished Professor of International Affairs U.S. Naval Academy and author of Negotiating With Iran: Wrestling the Ghosts of History
