"Vafi’s minimalist prose presents an innovative turn in the development of the Persian novel. Her style invites the reader to delve into the psychic anguish outlined in sharp images and quick exchanges."Nasrin Rahimieh, translator of —The Virgin of Solitude

"Through My Bird, Vafi is able to bring the reader to a world that is often cut off, misunderstood, and stereotyped to reveal a rich vibrant society of individuals, personalities, and dreams."—Multicultural Review

"My Bird is a fine novel of urban and domestic dissatisfaction, a wellturned account of modern anomie that is particularly appealing because its protagonist is an everyday woman, and not some bored intellectual."—Complete Review
