I invite you to read an excerpt of the first story in this collection, "The Frangrance of Naan," by Shahrokh Nikfar on loveandpomegranates.com website. Shahrokh is a U.S. citizen who was born and raised in Tehran and who returned to his homeland in 2000 for the first time in twenty-one years. I've included an image of him in this post reading from his piece at a recent gathering of intrepid readers and travelers from Spokane, Washington.
Shahrokh hosts a weekly radio program The Persian Hour, KYRS Radio, Spokane, WA. I will soon upload a recent discussion between Shahrokh and myself about the story of how this anthology came to be, its 67 or so contributors, and their work on loveandpomegrantes.com and my personal website meghannuttallsayres.com.
