Product Details


“A heartening narrative of family, transformation, and courage…the book could shatter a variety of prejudices and stereotypes.”—Kirkus Reviews

The Rumi Prescription is a testament to the healing power of artand its ability to bring peace to our battered souls. Sometimes thecure we need is not a pill, but a poem.”—Firoozeh Dumas, New York Times–bestselling author of Funny in Farsi

“As a lover of beautiful sentences and a secret self-help addict, I gobbled up this groundbreaking book, relishing the language, the wisdom, and the vivid and moving portrait of a father and daughter. Whether you read it for its fine translations of Rumi, its engrossing story, or as a practical guide for self-care, please give yourself the gift of reading The Rumi Prescription.”—David Gessner, New York Times–bestselling author of All the Wild That Remains and The Tarball Chronicles

“Melody Moezzi takes Rumi down from a dusty bookshelf, breathes life into his ancient wisdom, and makes him our guide through common contemporary struggles: anger, anxiety, distraction, and more. The Rumi Prescription translates the wisdom of a medieval mystic into the voice of a wise, honest, irreverent friend who tells us what we most need to hear.”—Krista Bremer, author of My Accidental Jihad and A Tender Struggle

“A stunning memoir. Melody Moezzi merges medieval poetry with modern drama, exploring love, politics, and mental health. Original translations of Rumi’s poems are interspersed with ruminations on fatherhood, feminism, and self-care, offering insights that will changeyour life. I wish I could prescribe this memoir.”—Dr. Seema Yasmin, MD, author of Muslim Women Are Everything: Stereotype-Shattering Stories of Courage, Inspiration, and Adventure

“This book enlightened, delighted, and actively helped me. It’s a love letter sent across centuries, from one artist to another—and decades, from a daughter to her father—and in the here and now, from a writer to her readers. The Rumi Prescription is the sweetest medicine I’ve ever taken.”—Nina de Gramont, author of The Last September

The Rumi Prescription is a joy to read.”—Ellen Forney, New York Times–bestselling author of Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michaelangelo, and Me
