Summary: "With U.S.-Iran relations at a thirty-year low, Iranian-American writer Hooman Majd dared to take his young family on a year-long sojourn in Tehran. 'The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay' traces their domestic adventures and closely tracks the political drama of a terrible year for Iran's government. 'The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay' is a sparkling account of life under a quixotic authoritarian regime that offers rare and intimate insight into a country and its people, as well as a personal story of exile and a search for the meaning of home.
