Editorial Reviews

That Night's Train is a satisfying story that weaves together fiction and reality in a unique way.

— CM

Reading and writing both become their own characters in Akbarpour's sly prose, as he blends and blurs what might be real-life characters with their unreliable narrators to create quite the literary adventure.

— Smithsonian

... perfect... a story from life experiences.
