Independence Day: Bascombe Trilogy (2), by Richard Ford (Vintage, 1996)
“Each flash of magical dialogue, every rumination a wild surprise… Independence Day is a confirmation of a talent as strong and varied as American fiction has to offer.” The New York Review of Books
Saraban: A Chef’s Journey through Persia, by Greg and Lucy Malouf (Hardy Grant Books, 2013)
“There is no doubt that this is a country and a culinary tradition bursting with possibilities. All that’s needed now, is for someone to explore them and share them with the rest of us. Fortunately, Greg and Lucy Malouf have.” Anthony Bourdain
Granta, Issue 131: The Map Is Not the Territory (Spring, 2015)
“In its blend of memoirs and photojournalism, and in its championing of contemporary realist fiction, Granta has its face pressed firmly against the window, determined to witness the world.” Observer
