Jael Richardson is q's books columnist. She drops by every couple weeks to fill us in on a new book to check out. Today, she joins host Tom Power to talk about Marjan Kamali's second novel The Stationery Shop. It's a story of unrequited love which starts in a stationery shop amidst the 1950s political unrest in Tehran. Richardson tells us why she likes a novel that shines a light on places and times that are unfamiliar to her.
