Mr. Baharloo is a writer and author and he has worked as an editor of a literary magazine. In his books he writes about loneliness and alienation. When interviewed by German 3sat he said that he does not consider himself a political writer, but rather a man of culture. However, in Iran, he explained, all cultural activities are politically linked. Many artists and writers are currently in prison in Iran, "I am, as a writer, concerned about the censorship you find it in all fields of literature, music, theater and publishing."
While residing in Frankfurt, Mr. Baharloo plans to finish a dictionary of Persian slang - a unique work of contemporary Iranian literature.
