Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi comes to Books Are Magic to celebrate her new novel Call Me Zebra, a feisty heroine’s quest to reclaim her past through the power of literature—even as she navigates the murkier mysteries of love.

She'll be in conversation with novelist, short story writer, and cultural critic Lynne Tillman.

About the book:
Zebra is the last in a line of anarchists, atheists, and autodidacts. When war came, her family didn’t fight; they took refuge in books. Now alone and in exile, Zebra leaves New York for Barcelona, retracing the journey she and her father made from Iran to the United States years ago.

Books are Zebra’s only companions—until she meets Ludo. Their connection is magnetic; their time together fraught. Zebra overwhelms him with her complex literary theories, her concern with death, and her obsession with history. He thinks she’s unhinged; she thinks he’s pedantic. Neither are wrong; neither can let the other go. They push and pull their way across the Mediterranean, wondering with each turn if their love, or lust, can free Zebra from her past.
