Vis & I is an interior monologue during a harrowing cab ride through the streets of Tehran as Pardis rushes to the airport to stop her lover from leaving. Multiple narrative threads and flashbacks, real and imaginary voices--primarily that of Vis, the heroine of the Persian epic romance, Vis & Ramin--interweave in this gritty, postmodern love story. Vis & I poses the ultimate challenge: to exercise the strength of will that Vis has come to represent in the Iranian literary canon and psyche in the vindication of a forbidden love and being true to oneself.
"An admirable accomplishment, as well as a genuine work of art."
