A story about family, set in the 1990s, and told through the sardonic voice of Valerie Kjos. She's a Midwestern Gen X'er whose life is just barely coming together with her live-in boyfriend when his Iranian mother, Goli, comes for a visit that seems to never end. Valerie will have to decide what's more important--doing everything her own way, or her beloved Naveed and his mother, who might not approve if she knew everything about her. But as she's about to learn, Goli has secrets of her own.
