It is the nineteenth century and the kingdom of persia is at a turning point. When a young king, shah naser, takes to the throne he inherits a medieval, enchanted world. But beyond the court, the greater forces of colonisation and industrialisation close in. The shah's grand vizier sees only one solution - to open up to the outside world, and to bring persia into modernity. But the shah's mother fiercely opposes the vizier's reforms and sets about poisoning her son's mind against his advisor. With bloody battles, intrigue and extraordinary characters, the king brings a historical moment brilliantly to life. Reading as fairy tale and shedding light on a pivotal period in history, the king confirms kader abdolah as one of the world's most engaging storytellers.

About the Author:

Kader Abdolah (a pen name created in memoriam to friends who died under persecution by the current Iranian regime) was born in Iran in 1954. While a student of physics in Tehran, he joined a secret leftist party that fought against the dictatorship of the shah and the subsequent dictatorship of the ayatollahs. Abdolah wrote for an illegal journal and clandestinely published two books in Iran. In 1988, he arrived in the Netherlands as a political refugee. Kader Abdolah is the author of several books, including the novels My Father's Notebook and The House of the Mosque. He has received several awards, including the Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres decoration in 2008. Nancy Forest-Flier is an American-born translator who has made her home in the Netherlands.
