    Hi Woodstock & thank you for your inclusion and your interest.. Of course I am very excited about all this, Recently I received my first professional review featured in Kirkus literary Magazine, They have selected the work as “Best Books ’16” & this is what they say about the novel: “A sharp, witty, and often moving account of an ancient nation on life support.” They have compared my humor to the works of the author of catch-22.

    I haven’t forgotten you Woodstock and this is the first paragraph of the author bio. in the book:
    “.Faris is a sociologist & political scientist who has lived studied and worked in the birth place of three of the richest civilizations of the ancient world (Persia, India & Greece)…….At an early age his inquisitive mind took him to the foot hills of Mount Everest in India to attend an international school……
    What I learned at Woodstock from my teachers, friends and colleagues in the community & my continued relation with all of you has contributed & shaped a big part of what I am & I think the author of catch-22 should be really proud to have been compared to me.
    Love,
    Faris Nejad (Fardis Nouraninejad) Calss of ’80
