Here we go, today I am so excited to be arts calling Thomas Bazar!


Thomas Bazar (pronounced Bay-zar), is a novelist and playwright. Two of his plays were staged with the performance collective, A Band of Actors. He longs to reconnect with his Persian roots and loves Persian food and its great history. Besides that, he loves the wonderful cities of Lisbon and Paris, his dogs, and anything to do with the natural world.

His novel, An Expectation of Plenty, now available on Amazon!

Thanks for this amazing conversation, Thomas!
