Letters from Tehran
Book

March 30-April 26, 2003
The Iranian

I bought this book several years ago. But like nearly all my books, I never read it. Just a glance at the bookstand and I knew it was an important work. Naameh-haaee az Tehran: 1367-1373 (Letters from Tehran, 1988-1995, Cesmandaz Publishers, Paris) is a collection of eight letters sent to the publisher by Behrooz Emdadi Assl (real name?). There's much insight in these pages about Iranian politics, religion and culture, as well as Iranians themselves. But none would have mattered without the author's soft command of the pen, revealing the complexities of Iranian society in simple terms to a friend.
