On November 28, 2011 Picador Guest Professor Porochista Khakpour read from her novel Sons and Other Flammable Objects and excerpts from a new unpublished work. About 50 people came to the reading at the Skala/Schauspiel Leipzig. The following Q&A was moderated by the TV-journalist Minou Amir-Seh. Among many other topics, Professor Khakpour talked about how the relationship to her parents and her Iranian background influence and inspire her work. She also said that she enjoyed her time in Leipzig and described her experience as being "all unicorns and rainbows."
