Strange Times, My Dear: The Pen Anthology of Contemporary Iranian Literature

Strange Times, My Dear: The Pen Anthology of Contemporary Iranian Literature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the revolution of 1979, the West has been virtually cut off from Iran's culture. Despite war, repression, and censorship, there has been a cultural renaissance in Iran over the past 25 years, not only in literature, but also in music, art, and film. Now for the first time we have selections in translation from the work of over 50 men and women from three generations. This sampling-or to use the Farsi term golchine, a bouquet-provides a window onto an important but sorely neglected segment of world culture and will also serve to awaken further interest in the work of Iranian novelists and poets.

Synopsis:

A rich and varied collection of contemporary short stories, extracts from novels, and poetry that showcases the latest developments in Iranian literature.

About the Author

Nahid Mozaffari earned her Ph.D. in history and Middle Eastern studies from Harvard University. She has taught Middle Eastern history at the New School in New York and at Cabot University in Rome.
