In Brooklyn, New York, during November 2013, Ali Eskandarian was murdered alongside two members of his band the Yellow Dogs. In the months leading up to this terrible event, Ali had been in correspondence with a publisher, about a semi-autobiographical novel he had written.
Golden Years is that book, and tells the story of a group of young Iranian musicians in Brooklyn who are hungry and poor, high and hopping from bed to bed. A fictional document from a life cut tragically short, Golden Years is the story of youth, hope and beat psychosis.
