Passage to Persia, by Margaret A Frame

And, on Expats Hungary, Dr Bill Larkworthy writes of Passage to Persia: Writings of an American doctor during her life in Iran, 1929-1957 (Summertime Publishing, 2014): “Passage to Persia resonated with me. I qualified in medicine in London in the very year Dr Kibbe retired from her career (1957). I too spent decades practising medicine and living in the Middle East so can vouch that Adelaide Kibbe’s accounts of life outside the hospitals faithfully convey the local scenes – I can feel the buzz of the markets, smell the freshly baked bread and sniff the smoke of charcoal fires.”

  •  In 2010, Bill published his memoir DOCTOR LARK – the benefits of a medical education (Mosaïque Press). If you’d like to know more about this 80-year-old retired doctor and his overseas postings, see this interviewRead more about Passage to Persia here.
