Stories from Iran: An Anthology of Persian Short Fiction From 1921-1991
Heshmat Moayyad (Author, Editor)

Mage Publishers, Washington, D.C.
Paperback, 574 pages, 15.5x23x3.2 cm

The collection of 35 Persian short stories by 26 of Iran's contemporary writers gives voice to the concerns, strivings, and visions of their generation. In styles ranging from the dark to the humorous, from the elegant to the poetic, these stories depict aspects of both traditional and modern life in Iran with its many religious, political, cultural and class tensions. The expanding role of women in Iranian society is attested to both by the large number of women writers included in the volume, and by the central role played by women in many of the stories. Written during the last 75 years and arranged in chronological order, these stories span a period in Iranian history from the Constitutional Revolution (1906-11) to the present.
