Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments A Persian Requiem, Simin Daneshvar, translated from Persian by Roxane Zand, 1969, Iran, NOVEL

"...It begins on the eve of World War II, as two landholder brothers, Yusef and Abol-Gassem, react in opposite ways to the British request for their grand harvests...Zari believes she must be the family peacemaker, a difficult role in these troubled times: "She kept thinking about her past, and wondering whether she had always been a coward or whether she had become one."..."

(H.S., p. 279)
