Acclaimed Iranian-Canadian poet Nilofar Shidmehr presents her debut story collection, Divided Loyalties, which explores the lives of women in post-revolutionary Iran and the contemporary diaspora in Canada.

The stories in Divided Loyalties show the complexity of the expectations forced upon women, and the resilience of a community experiencing the turmoil of war, revolution, and migration.

This book was picked by CBC Book as one of the 28 works of Canadian fiction to watch for in spring 2019.

Hosted by Samira Mohyeddin, award-winning journalist and CBC producer.
