On bookmarks today is Iranian-born author Mahyar Amouzegar. His love of literature can be traced back to his childhood in Iran when his father, a ferocious reader, encouraged reading in all seven of his children. His early teens were spent in the US away from the Iranian revolution, but away from his parents. He now divides his time between New Orleans, where he is provost of the University there, and Palmerston North, where he teaches Mathematics at Massey.  He has also just published his fourth novel, The Hubris of an Empty Hand.
