LOVE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
To ring in the New Year, this issue we enjoyed Yom Kippur in Tehran. Amy Guttman investigated the close-knit world of Persian Jews – and found out why they have no plans to desert their homeland just yet. Gloria Tessler spoke to one man who lived through the turbulence of the 1979 Iranian revolution. Roshan McArthur interviewed the new wave of Tehrangelians who are creating waves in their adopted city of LA. As well as all that you’ll find our exclusive three-month guide to art, books, film, music, theatre and cultural events in the UK and beyond. Plus we inspected a controversial show about circumcision, explored the life of writer Franz Werfel and considered the legacy of Leonard Bernstein.
