Reading and signing for OFF THE RADAR (Penguin/Blue Rider) by Cyrus Copeland. Library Journal: “This brilliant, touching tale of espionage, discovering family, and balancing cultures is recommended for fans of memoir, spy stories, and Iranian culture.”

Cyrus M. Copeland is the son of an American father and Iranian mother, and recently published his third book, OFF THE RADAR: A FATHER'S SECRET, A MOTHER'S HEROISM AND A SON'S QUEST. The book recounts the dramatic events following his father's imprisonment and trial as a CIA agent in revolutionary Iran, and his mother's heroic attempt to free her husband. Thirty-five years later, Cyrus set upon his own quest to discover whether the charges against his father were true. The resulting book has been hailed by critics. Library Journal says, "This brilliant, touching tale of espionage, discovering family, and balancing cultures is recommended for fans of memoir, spy stories, and Iranian culture." And Booklist says OFF THE RADAR is "an expansive and eloquent memoir that reads like a real life spy story... There are lessons both personal and political in the legacy of strife that Copeland inherits, and Off the Radar explores both with pitch-perfect tone and deep emotion."
