About the Author

Born in Canada, Jennifer Klinec lives and works in London.


A moving meditation on love across cultures and the evocative power of food * The Lady *
A cross-cultural romance with a backdrop of Middle Eastern cuisine. Conveys the fear and excitement experienced by a couple trying to get to know each other in a strictly controlled society * Herald *
The writing is vivid and sensual, the city of Yazd where she stays comes alive - the people, the streets, the scents, and her description of, among other things, a slaughterhouse is powerful. I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a film * Sydney Morning Herald *
The Temporary Bride is a beautifully written window into a world few of us have ever entered: contemporary Iran in all its complexity. Its sprawling cities and street-side eateries come to life, but most vivid is the portrait of ordinary Iranians: cooking, sharing, living, in a world where Westerners are unwelcome. A book for travellers - of the world and the senses * Irish Examiner *
This is amour sans frontieres. An adventure in a globalised world. Love laughs at rigorously controlled borders * The Times *
A moving memoir about love against the odds * Good Housekeeping - Best non-fiction *

Jennifer Klinec went to Iran looking for food and found forbidden love. She writes about both with equal eloquence
and panache. An absorbing, page-turning tale of one strong woman's curiosity and daring that ventures behind Iran's closed doors

-- Anya Von Bremzen, author of Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing
