TOP 5 PUBLISHING HEADLINES
AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY

“What I experienced with Outskirts Press in publishing my book was a lot more than what I expected. The process was smooth, my questions were answered, and I received suggestions and recommendations from my Author Representative, which were very helpful.”

Haji Razmi was born in Kandahar-Afghanistan. He went to the School of Law and Political Sciences, Kabul University. While employed at the Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan, he earned the certificate of graduation from the Institute of Diplomacy. He worked for four years as a diplomat at the United Nations in New York. Utilizing a UN fellowship, he earned the certificate of attendance of the 1990 full summer sessions of the International Law Commission in Geneva and of the International Law Academy of The Hague. From 2010 to 2014 he taught Pashto language at California State – East Bay and Stanford Universities. He is the author of Afghans Don’t Cry – a collection of short stories. He works and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Even if the sky falls to the ground, even if the whole world begs me, and even if all the people in the city and in the country kiss my hands and feet, I swear to God, I swear to the Prophet and I swear to the Quran that this cannot and will not happen, you all know me very well, when I say no to anything, that thing cannot be done even if it costs my life. If my son is really my son, he will never be able to do this. I am known in the whole world, from here to London, from Pakistan to America, as a hero of Jihad, so tell my son not to mess up with me…” This novel takes you on a fascinating journey into the moral, cultural, social, political and historical lifestyle of a nation where both ancient and modern empires and super powers; Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, the Mogul Empire, Persian Empire, the British Empire, Sikh Empire, the Soviet Union and finally the richest country in the human history, the United States of America adventured but lingered in knowing the uniqueness and the real convolution of its way of life. This novel takes you deep down to that point of the journey where I bet you have never been.

– Haji Razmi, author of The Alliance
