With Dry Blood and Fresh Vegetables, we are privy to the disarming casualness of a telephone conversation between a middle-aged mother and her daughter, a young woman not yet in her thirties. Set to the rhythms of seemingly unrehearsed exchanges, the marrow of life, writ large and small, unscrolls. They discuss motherhood and grandchildren, people around them, womanhood, streets in their neighbourhood, life in Tehran, and the war in Iraq.
