Praise for Tehrangeles

Named a Most Anticipated Book of the Year by TIME, The National, Nylon, Lit Hub, Electric Literature, Seattle Times, and Library Journal

“Funny, devastating, and filled with dazzlingly accurate observations about the absurdities of our age, this is a story and family that will stay with you long after you finish. It’s a giddy and gaudy life that the Milanis lead but underneath the bravado lies a tenderness that Khakpour reveals with playfulness and marvelous narrative style.”
Marjan Kamali, author of The Stationery Shop

“Like all great satires, Porochista Khakpour’s Tehrangeles is both hilarious and heartfelt. With razor-sharp writing, Khakpour brings to life a family, a place, and a series of modern dilemmas that will leave you laughing, thinking, and wanting more.”
Abdi Nazemian, author of Only This Beautiful Moment

“Porochista Khakpour has lowkey written a hilarious book about a truly terrible time. Tehrangeles takes us inside the surreal world of the wealthy and beautiful Milani sisters, coming of age in an extraordinary time and posting it all—the good, the bad, the ridiculous—on social media.”
Marcy Dermansky, author of Hurricane Girl

“With a sharp eye for the chaos and complexities of family life and a breezy, Babitzian wit, Porochista Khakpour’s Tehrangeles brings us the unforgettable story of the Milani sisters. At once moving family drama, sparkling intergenerational comedy, and perfectly-tuned portrait of our modern, social-media-obsessed condition, Tehrangeles is an endless delight.”
—Matthew Specktor, author of Always Crashing in the Same Car

“Fun, frothy, smart, biting, and hilarious—an utterly unique kind of pandemic story. Full of surprising twists, this tale of family dysfunction, sisterly angst, and self-discovery made me laugh, think, cringe, and laugh some more. Like the most skilled of reality stars, the Milanis grabbed my attention and I couldn’t tear myself away!”
—Deepa Varadarajan, author of Late Bloomers

“[A] biting, clever tragicomic…Think: Reality TV, Los Angeles McMansions, and a fast food empire.”

“Khakpour excels at the double edged coin of humor and tragedy.”
—Lit Hub

“A literary phenom.”
Seattle Times
