THE LAST DAYS OF CAFE LEILA — "[M]ore than anything, I want to show you that our lives have meaning beyond the everyday things we dwell on. We play a part, however small, in the times in which we live..." (284). — Noor, the late-bloomer in Donia Bijan's debut novel The Last Days of Cafe Leila, offers powerful and ironic advice. She claims that the "everyday things" act as distractions. She isn't wrong. Yet throughout her journey, she - and we - discover that it's in tenderly and courageously moving forward in the "everyday things" that a sense of self and purpose can be achieved. Collect enough courageous acts of everyday love, loyalty, and integrity and you will create a legacy. By seeking a meaningful everyday, we can play the parts we hope for "in the times in which we live.” #bookclubfashion #bookstagram #thelastdaysofcafeleila #foodie #doniabijan #Noor
