Sinopsis:

This series is designed to bring to North American readers the once-unheard voices of writers who have achieved wide acclaim at home, but are not recognized beyond the borders of their native lands. With special emphasis on women writers, Interlink's Emerging Voices series publishes the best of the world's contemporary literature in translation or original English.

Is it really possible for a man to forget who he is? Loony Kamal is bent on finding out. Our narrator, though, is even more determined to survive. Their relationship -- with its inhuman brutality and surprising tenderness -- lies at the complicated heart of Farnoosh Moshiri's extraordinary debut novel.

From Kirkus Reviews:

This remarkably intricate and fascinating first novel dramatizes in luxuriant and resonant detail the ordeal of a political prisoner of the Iranian revolution of the late 1970s. He is Moshiris unnamed narrator: an accused ``Unbreakable'' who won't confess his (supposed) crimes or repent of his alleged apostasy from the ``faith'' brandished by zealots currently in power. Bullied and seduced by the mercurial prison guard ``Loony Kamal,'' and having realized that the ``only way to survive is to return,'' the narrator recalls and reinvents the history of his highborn liberal family and that of their village, surrounded (in fact, imprisoned) by an increasingly high wall that is being patiently built by the Sisyphean shape-changing figure of Ali the Bricklayera vivid embodiment of the spirit of a populace caught between its impulse toward independence and its obedience to archaic mores and laws. The artful confusions of time, place, and characters brilliantly reinforce Moshiri's commanding theme: that anyone, regardless of his actions, may be perceived as both a hero of, and a traitor to, Iran's ``Holy'' Revolution. A superb debut.-- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
