Mahmoud (ebook)

* Required Fields


Mahmoud is an exuberant, if overwhelmingly passionate, Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver who relishes the chance to regale his passengers with his love of Persian culture. Emanuelos, a fabulously gay Spanish perfume salesman, can talk a mile-a-minute about his boyfriend, Behnam. And then there’s Tara, an awkwardly charming Iranian Canadian preteen who just wants to be “normal,” whatever that means. When the three strangers find themselves crossing paths in the busy streets of Toronto, their experiences with racism, sexism, homophobia, homesickness, and everything in between become intertwined in unexpected ways.

“A knockout.” —Raven Snook, Time Out New York

“[Mahmoud] expertly manages the tension between the comedic and the dramatic through fine character crafting.”—Cristina D’Amico, Toronto Review of Books

“The script weaves [the characters’] lives together in surprising ways, with some sensitive and sombre moments mixed with the laughs.” —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine

“Resonate(s) with such poignant and universal familiarity.” Bill RadenLA Weekly
