Touba

My friend Rick has been raving about Shahrnush Parsipur’s Touba and the Meaning of Night, which has just been released here in the States. This novel was written when Parsipur, already an established writer in Iran, had spent a few years in prison for her work. (She was to be incarcerated again, and her books periodically banned.) You can read an interview with her here.
