The Last Illusion, Porochista Khakpour (May 13th)

One of the books Flavorwire has been looking forward to all year,  Khakpour’s latest is a stunning, darkly humorous, and at more than a few points totally heartbreaking novel abut an Iranian boy who thinks he’s a bird after years of torture. We invite you to read it — and help us figure out how one writer can take such a subject and spin it into something you just want to wrap yourself in. An absolute stunner.
