In 1996 Koorosh Angali published his first compilations of poetry titled In Search of One's Own Self, financed by himself and distributed by Nashr-e Ketab Publications in Los Angeles, California. With the exception of a couple of 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 many from the first publication, to publish it in Iran with the same title.
