Anis Shivani writes with “transgressive intellect”

Anis Shivani’s short story collection Anatolia and Other Stories was reviewed in the new issue of The Antioch Review, and earned high praise: “These are big, complicated, noncompliant stories. Shivani zips the reader around the globe (and through time) in these pages, aiming straight for the dangerous intersections of myriad cultures. Yet the most striking–most foreign–aspect of the work is the challenge it poses to popular, palatable, and perhaps unexamined beliefs; its unwillingness to reinforce what we think we know about justice, morality, and power.” Read the entire review in the latest print edition of Antioch, and buy your copy of this exceptional collection here.
