With My Head in the Clouds and Stars in My Eyes: Stories about Iran and Elsewhere (Paperback)Joobin Bekhrad (author)
Paperback 208 Pages / Published: 28/07/2017
- Not available
Though Iran is at the beating heart of Bekhrad's book, other lands and cultures have also been explored. Owing to his Iranic Kurdish roots, Turkey's master writer Yashar Kemal has been celebrated. Bekhrad has also written about experiences in cities such as Paris, London, Marrakech, and Prague, which he viewed through a characteristically Iranian lens, and in which Iran was always on his mind and in his heart. Such miscellanies are always difficult to describe and categorise. Is Bekhrad's book a travelogue, memoir, work of prose, or historical document? Perhaps it is none of the aforesaid, or perhaps it is all at once. Regardless of how one wishes to present the book, if there is one thing that can be said with certainty, it is that in telling stories about other people and places, Bekhrad has ultimately written a book about a starry-eyed Iranian dreamer with his head in the clouds; that is to say, he has, as he is often wont to do, written a book about himself.
