The Last Illusion

The National, May 8 2014

Very positive review by Malcolm Forbes:

“Porochista Khakpour flies high on the wings of allegory”

 

Flavorwire, May 2014

“May 2014 Must-Read Books”

One of the books Flavorwire has been looking forward to all year,  Khakpour’s latest is a stunning, darkly humorous, and at more than a few points totally heartbreaking novel abut an Iranian boy who thinks he’s a bird after years of torture. We invite you to read it — and help us figure out how one writer can take such a subject and spin it into something you just want to wrap yourself in. An absolute stunner. “
