book.jpgIranian author Goli Taraghi believes that everyday objects have a lived history behind them that goes back to "primordial time." The recent collection The Pomegranate Lady and Her Sons (W.W.

Taraghi tells how she learned to convert experience into fable, and explains her stories’ conscious subtlety in charting the entry of the eternal into the daily world.
