Siamak Vossoughi Reviewed in The New York Times!

Siamak Vossoughi's story collection, A Sense of the Whole, has been reviewed in The New York Times Book Review!

“[Vossoughi’s] elliptical sentences isolate English words and sayings so as to make them newly strange. [...] These are moral tales with uncertain answers. One might read them as anecdotal for the Iranian-American experience, but rendered in Vossoughi’s epigrammatic prose they ultimately unfold through the language of the universal. Each lights on a minor encounter—between strangers, neighbors, lovers—and what emerges is the sense that anyone you meet has a story.” Jane Hu, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

The review is online at the New York Times website, and will also appear in the November 15 print issue. Order A Sense of the Whole here!
