I saw Fatemeh reading at last year’s Bradford Literature Festival and was really impressed with her poetry so I have brought this collection to read.

Kenza | 34 comments Those interested in Iranian literature can find in the Michigan Quarterly Review (magazine) the spring 2019 issue dedicated to Iran. There are about 340 pages with Iranian fiction, essay and poetry, the guest editor is Kathryn Babayan, a fantastic edition to discover new authors.

On the other hand, a request for help, if any of you know a blog (Arablit style) or a reading group dedicated to Iranian literature, I would appreciate the information.

Thanks for sharing ! as for question, I only know this group, but it needs someone to volunteer to be a moderator.

I was considering reading Touba and the Meaning of Night for this category but I am not sure when.

Thank you!

I loved Women Without Men: A Novel of Modern Iran, and so far is the only thing I read about Shahrnush Parsipur, but I'm looking forward to continue discovering his work, I'm going to take a look at Touba and the Meaning of Night.
