Summary
In this collection, the fantastical and the visceral merge in tales of tender desire and collective violence, the boredom and brutality of war, modern urban life and rural traditions. Mandanipour, banned from publication in his native Iran, vividly renders the individual consciousness in extremis from a variety of perspectives: young and old, man and woman, conscript and prisoner. While delivering a ferocious social critique, these stories are steeped in the poetry and stark beauty of an ancient land and culture. --Adapted from back cover
