Ruby Emam (goodreadscomruby_emam) The Little Black Fish
An intriguing story for children, this book has countless political messages for adult readers, progressives and intellectuals and shows a path to freedom and justice. The author Samad Beh-Rang (Behrangi) is from Azerbaijan, Iran; who was an educator and wrote many books and articles on pedagogy. He believed in fundamental changes to the existing system to build a better future for everyone. He lost his life because of his idealogy.

The Little Black Fish is also the biography of a freedom fighter known all over the world...

Thanks for the recommendation Ruby, I'm really interested in Iran right now. I found Persepolis incredibly eye-opening.


Christa (is on top of the world!) (ObsesedWBooks) | 6 comments Hmm... I've allways been interested in Japan or China. Did you know that one of the two countrys banned any movies, or comics, about Spiderman because some kids were trying to climb a brick wall and got hurt?

How easy would it be to get this book from down here in Mexico? And is it really worth the investment?Books cost me more down here than if I were there in the heart of the beast.

At least they're cheap at Goodwill-but I still have the question-how easy will it be to get the book?Is it a big seller?Obviously not too new since it's in Goodwill-Actually as I write this I'm thinking check Amazon or Powel's-I'm not rich-my one big personal indulgence is books-My other indulgence is my 22 year old downs son-

Ruby Emam (goodreadscomruby_emam) I appreciate your interest in The Little Black Fish. The book is available through online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powell's, Tower. This translation is fairly new but the book has been translated into several languages and has won a few international prizes.


Christa (is on top of the world!) (ObsesedWBooks) | 6 comments Yeah I don't actualy own the book yet, but when I get some money back from the time I spent at vacation I'll look at buying it.

Double ps--goodreads has become a goldmine for me for sniffing out the kind of books I want to read-

Ruby Emam (goodreadscomruby_emam) Persepolis is a great book, many families went through that ordeal after the Islamic regime took over and stopped (or I would rather say "postponed")our revolution which was aimed for justice, equality and freedom.
