A Good Place to Die evokes the history of a vastly complicated land and the lengths to which we'll go for those we love, even when faced with the truly unthinkable. 1974. Eighteen-year-old drifter John Pitt leaves England with nothing more than his wits and a desire to see the world. When he reaches Iran, he takes a job teaching English. On his first day, he is struck by a veiled woman with luminous black eyes and 'lovely feet' - the headstrong Shirin. The two fall naively and fiercely in love - without considering the consequences of a love like theirs in the Shah's Iran. As the forces of revolution begin to rip through the country, John and Shirin are brutally separated, and John finds himself alone amid a vicious and devastating conflict in a region he barely understands. Pulse-thumping and lyrical, A Good Place to Die evokes the history of a vastly complicated land and the lengths to which we'll go for those we love, even when faced with the truly unthinkable.
