The Drum Tower is Farnoosh Moshiri's fourth work of fiction concerned with the deleterious effects of the Iranian Revolution of 1979. This novel, told by a mentally ill, 16-year-old girl, depicts the fall of Drum Tower, the house of a family descended from generations of War Ministers. Rich in characters-Talkhoon, who struggles to control the winds she hears inside her head and who tells the story; Assad, a man made evil by his love for her; Anvar Angha, Talkhoon's grandfather who has devoted his life to writing a book about the Simorgh (the mythical bird of knowledge; the Persian Phoenix) but never completes it; Soraya, Talkhoon's mother, whom we never meet but about whom myriad and contradictory stories abound-and rich in family secrets, this novel chronicles the early days of the revolution, the ruthness and opportunism of the competing factions, the rise of the Revolutionary Guard, the chaos and murder in the streets of Tehran, the arrests and executions, as experienced by the members of this family. The Drum Tower may be compared, favorably, to Gone with the Wind. It has already won two Barbara Deming Memorial Fund Fiction Awards and a Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction. It has been licensed to the United Kingdom's Sandstone Press which will publish the British Commonwealth edition simultaneous with the Black Heron Press edition.
Прекрасное драматическое произведение для тех, кто обожает трогательные романы. Любовники в изгнании, опасные приключения, битвы, а также – деньги - вот то все, что легло в основу этого произведения. В книге описаны невероятные морские приключения, жестокие бои за деньги, власть, межличностные отношения и роковая любовь. Это - подлинный образ пиратов с позиции романтиков, а вот реальность предстает несколько другой. Это- темная крохотная каютка, постоянная качка, приступы морской болезни, а также кровоточащие от работы руки. Вот настоящая жизнь пиратов – когда пресной воды в оборе, питание - морская рыба, кусаются опасные насекомые, постоянные удушья от тропической болезни. Это – точно не та романтика, которой привыкли нежные читательницы.
