Podcast Episode 012: Porochista Khakpour


Porochista Khakpour’s new novel, The Last Illusion, has been called a book full of hard fought wonders, harsh, and yet full of grace, with a touch of myth and an abundance of love. In this episode of the Monkeybicycle Podcast she reads from the book, available May 13th from Bloomsbury USA.

Praise for The Last Illusion:

“…walks a line between mythical and realistic, somehow melding the two seamlessly and keeping reality in sharp focus.”

“An audaciously ambitious novel.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Blazingly Original”
—The Millions
