Ghazaleh Golbakhsh: The girl from Revolution Road

In this episode of Books and Beyond, Alison and Ineka chat with writer, filmmaker, and Fulbright Scholar Ghazaleh Golbakhsh who has just released a book of essays called The girl from Revolution Road, based on her experience as an Iranian immigrant growing up in New Zealand. The essays cover topics like being different and living between two worlds, micro-aggressions, racial harassment and the events of 15 March 2019. This is a book full of pain, tenderness and surprising amounts of humour.
