The Street of Good Fortune is the compelling memoir of Iranian-Canadian Maryam Manteghi, who goes to Bosnia in the early 2000s to follow in the footsteps of her then heroine, Christiane Amanpour. When she is diagnosed with breast-cancer at the age of just 34, her world spins out of control – propelling her to a new life, a new city and even a new heroine; the stylish and sexy Kyle Minogue. Humorous, witty and light-hearted, this memoir is more than a cancer-diary. It’s the story of the little triumphs that make up a woman’s journey from strength to strength.

“Maryam Manteghi has a talent and ability to communicate what most people would deeply relate to but have a hard time articulating. By heritage and conviction a Baha’i, Maryam’s ethnic mix includes Jewish, Persian and Kurdish. She’s fluent in English, French and Farsi and competent in Bosnian. A graduate of the University of Toronto and the University of Windsor, she also studied human rights law at Oxford. She’s practiced immigration law in Canada, worked for United Nations organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and clerked in The Hague, the Netherlands with the International Tribunal of the Former Yugoslavia. She currently runs her own law firm.”
