About the Author
Ali Hosseini is an Iranian American who came to the United States as a student in the seventies. He has published a novel and two short story collections in Iran, and his short fiction has been published in Persian in the United States in Par Monthly and Persian Book Review. His work in English has been published in Epoch, Fiction International, American Letters & Commentary, Puerto del Sol, Ararat, and Hawai'i Review. He lives in the Boston area.
"Ali Hosseini takes us to vivid places in the landscape and heart of a contemporary Iran sorely missing from the news bites; weaves a masterful tale of Persia's many subcultures caught in a changing climate of intolerance and of one man's agony, remorse, redemption--a story of love lost and found."
--Paul L. Bates, author of "Imprint "and "Dreamer"
"[The Lemon Grove] is very polished, the characters believably real, and the story evocative."

--Robert Bonazzi

"The intensity of the story, global and personal, will spark discussion." --Booklist
