Dervishes is about a lesbian physicist, a mayoral primary, independent judgment, a maternal deprogramming, superfluid helium, and a concupiscent crustacean, among other things. At its heart, Dervishes is the story of a woman's odyssey toward finding her academic, sexual, and political selves, in the face of well-meaning and not so well-meaning pressures.
