Dr. Hamidi's Difficult Divorce

A Novella by

"The story Nayeri tells of Bahman, Niloo, and the others is as wry, wise, willful, and poignant as a conversation with the author herself. But it transcends even these considerable borders for the same reason all great literature does: By virtue of the quality with which it says something about its subjects, it tells (and asks) you about you. You may find it hard to answer, but there are few gifts as generous as being asked - by someone close or by an author you've never met, though does the latter not try to reach you exactly where the former does?" - Boris Fishman
