Project

I am from Iran, but I live in Europe. I lived long enough in the era before Corona, and I have also experienced what life is like with Corona. Wherever and whenever, I have always been a monitorial dweller. The White City, The Red City, the novella I am working on these days, comes from such a liminal position I observe from. It is my attempt to bring a state of knowing to my microcosm and hopefully to that of the readers' now that the macrocosm seems to get more and more insurmountable and chaotic every year with new and old shocks up his sleeve.
