‘Da, One Woman’s War’ published in US

Tehran, April 17, IRNA – Persian novel ‘Da’, written by Azam Hosseini, has been released in California, US.

The Mazda publications website features the book, translated into English by Paul Sprachman, under the title ‘One Woman’s War (Da’).

‘Da’ contains recollections by Ms Hosseini of the time when the Iraqi army captured Khorramshahr in the early days of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. It is a true-to-life story of a teenager who experienced the early days of the war in Khorramshahr.

Hosseini wrote ‘Da’ based on narrations by Hosseini. The book was published in 2008 and soon became an Iranian bestseller.

Sprachman has earlier translated Ahmad Dehqan’s ‘Bearing 270 Degrees’, and Habib Ahmadzadeh’s ‘Chess with the Resurrection Machine’, two other Persian novels in the Sacred Defense genre.
