MEET THE MILANIS. FAST-FOOD HEIRESSES, LA ROYALTY, AND YOUR NEWEST REALITY TV OBSESSION

Iranian-American multimillionaires Ali and Homa Milani have it all-a McMansion in the hills of Los Angeles, a microwaveable snack empire, and four spirited daughters. There's Violet, the big-hearted aspiring model; Roxanna, the chaotic influencer; Mina, the chronically-online overachiever; and the impressionable health fanatic Haylee. On the verge of landing their own reality TV show, the Milanis realize their deepest secrets are about to be dragged out into the open before the cameras even roll.

Each of the Milanis-even their aloof Persian cat Pari-has something to hide, but the looming scrutiny of fame also threatens to bring the family closer than ever. Dramatic, biting yet full of heart, Tehrangeles is a tragicomic saga about high-functioning family dysfunction and the ever-present struggle to accept one's true self.

PRAISE for TEHRANGELES
'Like Little Women on an ayahuasca trip, Tehrangeles is delightfully twisted and heartfelt ... The antics and agonies of the Milani family had me googling pet psychics and turning the pages gleefully - at turns surprised and horrified, but always charmed and laughing so hard.' - Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

'a real crowd-pleaser' - Bustle

'bold and effervescent' - Publishers Weekly

'[A] biting, clever tragicomic...Think: Reality TV, Los Angeles McMansions, and a fast food empire.' - Nylon

'At once moving family drama, sparkling intergenerational comedy, and perfectly-tuned portrait of our modern, social-media-obsessed condition, Tehrangeles is an endless delight.' - Matthew Specktor

'Think the Kardashians meet Little Women and Crazy Rich Asians.' - Vogue

'Funny, devastating, and filled with dazzlingly accurate observations about the absurdities of our age, this is a story and family that will stay with you long after you finish. It's a giddy and gaudy life that the Milanis lead, but underneath the bravado lies a tenderness that Khakpour reveals with playfulness and marvelous narrative style.' - MARJAN KAMALI, author of The Stationery Shop

'Like all great satires, Tehrangeles is both hilarious and heartfelt. With razor-sharp writing, Khakpour brings to life a family, a place, and a series of modern dilemmas that will leave you laughing, thinking, and wanting more.' - ABDI NAZEMIAN, author of Only This Beautiful Moment

'One of our best new satirists, partly because she is never as moving as when she is entirely sincere' - Alexander Chee

'In compulsively readable sections examining fame, identity, and family dynamics, the Milani family's chapter is as exuberant as it is entertaining.' - Our Culture Mag
