Quick Overview

Horse’s Head is a quest story of sorts in which the protagonist, Kasra, an unemployed white-collar worker, becomes acquainted with a young Kurdish woman and is infatuated with her and her plight with regard to Kurdish autonomy; after her departure he goes to the Kurdish regions in search of her, to in fact find himself. In a sense, Kasra, whose life seems aimless, is searching for a cause, a reason to give his existence meaning, and he tries to make the Kurdish girl’s cause his own.
