Description:

New York. 1981. Random House. 1st American Edition. Some Foxing On Top Edge, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket. 12. 223 pages. June 1981. hardcover. Jacket design by Bob Silverman. 0394505115. keywords:. inventory # 6387. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This collection of Gholam-Hossein Sa’edi’s stories opens a new vista into the understanding of Iranian life. A dissident writer who fled the Shah’s rule, Sa’edi’s fiction partakes of and reflects the customs, the religion and the way of life in Iran. The title story, ‘Dandil,’ is about the pecuniary aspirations of the people in a poverty-stricken town, as they expose the charm and beauty of a young girl to an American soldier. In the second tale, ‘The Game Is Over,’ an Iranian Tom Sawyer fakes his own death as revenge against his drunken, cruel father, but falls to the very death he staged a few days earlier. ‘The Rubbish Heap’ tells of the harsh practice of selling blood to earn a few pennies. ‘Keykãvus, Baldy and Me’ is based on the disparity between the mentalities of a small, backward town official and three documentary filmmakers from the city. Each story is filled with human irony and political metaphor. Sa’edi shows us an Iran never in the news - an Iran of ordinary people with hopes, fears and sorrows. In this compelling collection, Sa’edi bridges a profound cultural gap to bring us a work of scope, sensitivity and importance. Some Foxing On Top Edge, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket.
