Revue de presse

The Pomegranate Lady and Her Sons is a book of many pleasures. It has a scalpel-sharp sense of the absurd and a splendid view of the wild resourcefulness of people coping with restraints. Vibrancy spills from impossible situations--pain and charm keep trading places--in Goli Taraghi's remarkable stories. --Joan Silber

Présentation de l'éditeur

Rich in characters both whimsical and deeply poignant, humorous and real, the stories of Goli Taraghi have made her one of the world s most beloved contemporary writers from Iran. A best-selling author in her native country and widely anthologized in the United States and around the world, Taraghi's work is now made fully accessible to an English-speaking audience in this standout and long-awaited volume of selected stories. Drawing on childhood experiences in Tehran during the reign of the Shah, her exile in Paris, and her subsequent visits to Tehran after the revolution, Taraghi develops characters and tales that linger in one s mind. In the title story, a woman traveling from Tehran to Paris is obliged to help an old woman the Pomegranate Lady find her way to her fugitive sons in Sweden. In "The Gentleman Thief," a new kind of polite, apologetic thief emerges from the wreckage of the revolution. In "Encounter," a woman's world is upended when her former maid becomes her jailer. And in "The Flowers of Shiraz," a group of teenagers finally manages to coax a shy schoolmate out of her shell only to once again encounter tragedy. Reminiscent of the work of Nadine Gordimer and Eudora Welty, Taraghi's stories capture universal experiences of love, loss, alienation, and belonging all with an irresistible sense of life s absurdities.

Critically Acclaimed Iranian Short Story Collection Well Worth a Read 16 décembre 2013
Par kas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A starred recommendation from Kirkus Reviews and my longstanding interest in Middle Eastern, including Iranian, cultures and history served as powerful draws for me to read The Pomegranate Lady and Her Sons: Selected Stories by Goli Taraghi as soon as I could. Very fortunately, I won a Goodreads giveaway featuring this book as a prize. The collection satisfied my curiosity by providing me with more experience reading Iranian literature (if only in translation, thanks in this case to the efforts of Sara Khalili) and expanded my understanding of modern Iranian culture as it manifests in people's everyday lives.

Outside of the contextual information they provided, I don't expect these stories to prove particularly memorable even though my reading experience was very satisfying. They just didn't capture my imagination, as it were, which has more to do with my personality than any flaw or strength in the text itself.

The best of writing and storytelling 3 décembre 2013
Par Elizabeth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love good writing and good story telling. This book has both. You will find understanding and tenderness in your heart for people who suffer under oppressive government dictatorships, even as you are still able to chuckle at the insanity. And, considering that the book had to undergo several rounds of scrutiny and censor by several government bureaucrats, it is remarkable for what it reveals.
good writing and good story-telling 28 septembre 2014

Goli Taraghi is a marvelous story teller. She creates a tapestry with different stories and beautiful threads. Each character gets the center stage in different stories. Taraghi’s book offers readers a chance to read an author who has maintained her popularity in Iran for nearly four decades — an era spanning revolution, war and diaspora. Her accessible prose straddles the boundary between memoir and fiction, documenting life in Iran and in exile.
Taraghi’s work, with its focus on contemporary life as lived by a range of quixotic characters, offers not only a portrait of her homeland but a chance for readers to explore their own alternate selves. I love good writing and good story-telling. This book has both.
This book is not "a keeper." 10 juin 2014

I read for several reasons: to learn something (about history, people, culture human relations, and so on); to escape reality (mysteries, adventure, romance). I found The Pomegranate Lady and Her Sons neither educational nor pleasurable. I found no cohesiveness in the collection of stories (the title story appears last), and the characters did not elicit empathy, understanding, and caring.

Stories full of poetry beauty and truth. Each story is like a painting or a delicious dish. You won't want to put down your spoon until you've tasted each one.
