Abstract:

"Iran's literary production of the past century presents unprecedented riches, especially in works of fiction. Through their construction of extremely personal and individual narratives, many of these works have led to the puncturing of the grand narratives of the official discourse and have effectively succeeded in defining different times and spaces according to their own image." "The stories in this collection are among the best literary productions of contemporary Persian fiction. The authors, all of whom are quite established, skillfully use literary devices to create new realities which do not conform to any regulations and limitations imposed by prevalent discourses. These literary realities embody signs and codes which challenge the calcified narratives and definitions of subjective and objective territories."--Jacket.
