Quick Overview

The Tales of Sabalan, written by Mohammad Reza Bayrami in post-revolutionary Iran, is the story of a young boy who is forced to grow up quickly, to assume the role of the male head of the household at a tender age because of the untimely death of his father. It includes two short novels, "Kuh Mara Seda Zad" [The Mountain Called Me] and "Bar Labeh-ye Partgah" [On the Edge of the Precipice]. Although The Mountain Called Me was translated into German, as Djalal reitet um sein Leben, by Jutta Himmelreich (Zürich: Nagel & Kimche, 1999), and won two prestigious literary prizes in Europe, the present volume is the first English translation of Bayrami's work.
