Fiction. Middle-Eastern Studies. Translated from the Farsi by Esmail Nooriala. "On Thursday August the ninth, 1979, at 3:30 in the afternoon, Amin's family, friends and I became certain that he had definitely disappeared. Saeed, Abdol, and Ahmad had gone through all of the unidentified corpses in Tehran's central morgue and had told Nargess and me, waiting in the stuffy corridor filled with the repulsive smell of disinfectant, 'He is not here.'" So begins Shokooh Mirzadegi's best-selling novel of alienation and exile in post-Revolution Iran. THAT STRANGER WITHIN ME encompasses universal issues affecting humankind in this century, infusing this genre of literature with new meaning. "Mirzadegi addresses the mysterious death of a husband, infidelity, sorrow, abortion, exile and a series of other social and political issues against the backdrop of a recently revolutionized Iran coming to terms with its anger against a fallen and greatly misunderstood monarchy." -- Tara Taghizadeh.

Author Biography

Her short stories and poems appeared in Iranian literary magazines as early as the second half of 1960s. Her first collection of short stories was published in 1973, just before she was arrested, tortured and put in jail for two years, accused of conspiring to overthrow the Iranian monarchy. She was only released when she accepted to appear on national TV and plea for pardon.
