In 1996 Koorosh Angali published his first compilations of poetry titled In Search of One's Own Self, distributed by Nashr-e Ketab Publications in Los Angeles, California. With the exception of a few magazine reviews and book-signing sessions, the exposure was not up to his expectations, mostly due to the fact that the Iranians in diaspora were not much into reading at the time. Now that he lives in Tehran, he has prepared a new version, having added many more poems and omitted a few from the first publication, in order to publish the volume in Iran. The title will remain the same.
