I love this GREAT author.

The article does not mention my favorite book of his though:

"shoma keh gharibeh nisteed" 

translated as "Believe it or not"


This is a reflection of his own childhood and youth, growing up in Kerman. A masterpiece that touches the heart very deeply.

"The Tales of Madjid" is what I used to listen to on the radio, back home; now I have the book. Absolutely wonderful stories.

Even if your Farsi is not that great, find this book, buy this book, and read this book!
