Latest reviews

  • "The novel has its serious side, addressing homosexuality, the conflict between liberalism and conservatism in Iran [...], the intervention of England and the U.S. [...]. But the beauty of Disoriental is most importantly its sure-footed storytelling, its captivating characters, and its surprising ending."
