Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Book Review
This is a story of an immigrant family that had status and wealthy before migrating from Iran, an unpredictable young woman and an unhappily married man (a very unsympathetic, self-centered dangerous character).   These three, primarily, interacted with each other and the results were very bad consequences all around.  Each of the main characters were dealing with issues that I found interesting.   I enjoyed the book but have a hard time recommending it.
