Shahrnush Parsipur’s New Book: Men From Various Civilizations


Renowned Iranian writer Shahrnush Parsipur recently published an e-book, Men from Various Civilizations. It’s forty pages long and costs just $3, making it a perfect last-minute gift for the literary Iranian in your life – just buy and download it from Parsipur’s website, print it on some high-quality paper, and you’re done. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even get it bound at Kinko’s. (And I know what you’re thinking, but don’t be a cheapskate – pay for every copy you print. It’s a book, and it costs less than the overpriced latte you’re likely sipping.)

I’ve just downloaded the book and will write a review when I’ve finished reading it, but considering the high quality of Parsipur’s other work, Civilizations is probably pretty great, too.
