"The Gifts of The State and Other Stories: Afghan Writers Under Thirty" radically reshapes our idea of Afghanistan as a place of unquestioning religiosity, brutal sexism, and anti-American and Russian resistance. Rather, employing stark naturalism, surrealistic and genre elements, these writers bravely depict western-styled women in former Russian apartments and men obsessed with fantasies based on Mickey Spillane novels.

Adam Klein is the author of story collection "The Medicine Burns," the novel "Tiny Ladies," and the artist monograph "Jerome: After the Pageant." His work has appeared in "Bomb," the "New York Times At War Blog," and the "Huffington Post."
