A searing, sunlit debut about the powerful bonds that make and break an Iranian-American family

Three young brothers leave Los Angeles in the dead of night for Iran, taken by their father from their mother to a country and an ancestral home they barely recognize. They return to the Valley months later, spit back into American life and changed in inexorable ways. Under the dazzling light of the California sun, our protagonist, the youngest brother, begins to piece together a childhood shattered by his father's violence, a queer adolescence marked by a shy, secret love affair with a boy he meets on the basketball court, and his ever-changing status as a Muslim in America at the turn of the new millennium.

Lyrical and open-hearted, I WILL GREET THE SUN AGAIN is an unforgettable portrait of a family being torn apart, and a boy emerging from its ashes.

'I WILL GREET THE SUN AGAIN is exquisite, heart-breaking, incredibly beautiful. The whole narrative thrums with a bright, warm longing. You can feel the sunshine of LA and Iran, the rhythm of Khashayar J Khabushani's voice. This is a novel to return to again and again.' 
Caleb Azumah Nelson, award-winning, bestselling author of OPEN WATER

'A gorgeous and wrenching debut from a writer I'll be following for many years to come' 
Catherine Lacey, author of NOBODY IS EVER MISSING

'Khashayar J. Khabushani's debut novel, devoted to adolescence in all its glory and devastation, is a marvel. Reading it, I felt the thrill and joy of encountering a major writer at the beginning of his career' 
Megha Majumdar, author of A BURNING

'Brilliant, burningly honest' 
Edmund White'Khabushani's voice is a revelation, he's written a novel that shows what it means to grow up into a beautiful young man.' Javier Zamora, author of SOLITO
'This is a book I've dreamt of reading my whole life. How to mourn the loss of a country that has become unrecognizable, while living across the world in one that doesn't recognize you? How to dismantle the brutal ways men teach each other to (not) love other men? What to do with the love you still feel, however guiltily, for those who treated you violently? . . . I will be thinking about these characters for the rest of my life'
