The Ministry of Guidance - and Other Stories

by Golnoosh Nour - £7.99  Muswell Press (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781916129283 | ISBN 10: 1916129285

Set mostly in Iran, but making forays to London, Germany, and the transit area of a Ukrainian airport, the stories are brilliantly deft in summoning up the dilemmas of their protagonists, be they characters who are kicking against the confines of the society into which they are born, or characters wanting to embrace those confines.
 
Nour is a brave and acute observer of how the human spirit fights free of social repression in all its guises. These are stories that argue for nuance in a world that wants to make things black and white.
