Fiction

Ali’s forthcoming novel, The Last Days of Jeanne d’Arc, will be published in August 2017. Listen to an interview about the book and its subject matter here.

Ali’s first novel, The New Angel (2008), was published by Transit Lounge Publishing. It was noted in The Age newspaper as one of the “highly fancied Australian debuts” for 2008. It was The Age‘s ‘Fiction Pick of the Week’ on 26 July 2008.

Ali’s second work of prose, a fusion of fiction, memoir and non-fiction titled Iran: My Grandfather, was published in May 2010, also by Transit Lounge Publishing. His new work of fiction, Transactions, has been recently published by University of Queensland Press in 2013. Ali’s short fiction and short creative non-fiction have been published in Griffith Review, Review of Australian Fiction, The Great Unknown, Alien Shores and Joyful Strains. In his review of Griffith Review 41, Chris Dite has observed that “the fiction piece from Ali Alizadeh is the perfect choice for a collection focused on our political woes. Alizadeh’s writing is blatantly anti-capitalist without the grating connotations of the label: his work is engaging, terrifying, and almost cinematic in style.”
