"THE CASPIAN CIRCLE" is the best and most promising first novel I have read for a number of years. I particularly liked the sobriety and obliqueness of Mr. Donneacute; Raffat's style, kept on hearing the ghost of E.M. Forster purring at my shoulder. -- John Fowles THE PRISON PAPERS OF BOZORG ALAVI "Totally gripping, excellently written, and in many places not a little harrowing...A political statement and document of major proportions ...Overwhelming, whether as a picture of life in Iran during and after the Shah's regime or as a contribution to the modern literary heritage of Iran." -- Roger Allen, University of Pennsylvania The Folly of Speaking "Few people write so clearly about the Iranian intellectual and occasionally ruling class as Donneacute; Raffat. This is the real thing! Donneacute; Raffat, a master of two worlds, helps the reader to a share of his mastery. -- Richard Stern " One turns from any new novel by Donneacute; Raffat with a sense both humbling and exhilarating that the world is larger than one knew. In The Folly of Speaking, he is both novelist and international tour guide, and never better in either role -- Jack Miles
