From Publishers Weekly

"Not tightly structured, these stories give glimpses of Iranian life and of the author's female perspective, and therein lies their value. Daneshvar's autobiographical reflections on the death of her husband Jalal Al-e Ahmad and on her life as a woman writer are particularly revealing." -- Choice Magazine
"Simin Daneshvar has long been recognized as one of Iran's most talented women writers. . . . Mafi's renditions make the stories accessible even to readers unfamiliar with the social and cultural setting of Daneshvar's texts. . . . With the publication of Daneshvar's Playhouse, her message of hope might find a larger audience." -- World Literature Today
"In five intriguing stories, the formal detachment of Daneshvar's prose reinforces her subtle revelation of repressive features in Iranian society..." -- Publishers Weekly
