Where I am Standing is a thoughtful collection of short stories that provide subtle but potent commentary on life. What inspired you to write this collection of stories?
The book is about a hometown which, little by little, witnesses ruins in all aspects there. It is a narrative of valuable spiritual and worldly lives that are gradually destroyed and turned into ashes. The name of the book “Where I am standing” illustrates the place a human is born and stands on his root, hometown. This can be interpreted as every human being’s life status encompassing all sorrows, joys, struggles and desires.
Did you write these stories specifically for this book or did you write these stories over time?
I have written the stories over time since each story was an inspiration through gradual degradation of human’s life around me.
My favorite story from the collection is ‘Human Being’. Do you have a favorite story from this book?
As you know generally it is almost impossible to choose one of them, but I can tell you some of them are different; Scarecrow-The Alley- Titanic, War, Lost, and My Shadow.
What are some themes you wanted to explore in this book?
The themes mostly deal with the human values which are about to vanish as well as all symbols of life in every individual’s life span.

Where I am Standing by Nooshin Mohajerin is an emotional collection of short stories that explore and illuminate many internal struggles. From anxiety, abuse, war, and loneliness, author Nooshin Mohajerin captures despair in several forms in this remarkable literary collection. I loved how Nooshin creatively described each feeling in the stories. This shows that internal battles are more complex than they seem. When you don’t suffer from experiencing negative thoughts, anxiety, depression, or abuse, it doesn’t seem as big as it really is. This collection is written from a perspective that shows a great depth of understanding in these matters.
There are so many stories to love, but my favorite is “Human Being”. This revealing emotionally charged and eloquent story is an overall expression of the many barriers in life. Some of us are more fortunate than others, but we don’t value it as much as others who dream to be in our position. These difficulties are a part of being human, yet we aren’t always looked at as a part of the human race. I admired the strength that it took to write these stories considering the sensitive content included.
Where I am Standing by Nooshin Mohajerin is a deeply thoughtful collection of short stories that provide subtle but potent commentary on life and the struggles we all face.
