Tarikh-e Sheguft-Angiz (Amazing History)
is a piece of satire my father wrote with his friend in 1965. It
in a limited
edition at the national oil company print shop in Abadan and distributed
among friends. It's dedicated to President Kennedy and follows
the traditional style of old Persian script.
Since my father's death in 1977, I have spotted this
small, thin, black booklet in family libraries many times but every
time I tried to read it, I never got further than a few pages.
I've had this fear that perhaps it's not that funny and therefore
better left alone. But I think it's time to give it the reading
it deserves. I'll hope for the best... -- Jahanshah Javid
