– Talent runs deep in 25-year-old Iranian-American Alexandra Monir’s
family. Given that her grandmother is the late Persian folk and opera
singer Monir Vakili, it is perhaps not surprising that she has already
released her first, much lauded novel Timeless.
when one realizes she also wrote and recorded multiple songs to
compliment the novel, and that she’s already penning her second book
(as requested by Random House), it’s hard not to be impressed.
