Remembering Esmaeil Fasih

Esmael Fasih has passed away yesterday in Iran. He was a part of my adolescent years. I read most of his books and saw America, Abadan, the old Tehran, the revolution, the war, ... through his eyes and through the characters in his stories. The characters that in many occasions were caught up in the brutality and unfairness of the world we live in today, but kept their faith in the serenity of the humanity, in kindness and courtesy. He was a kindred spirit. May his soul rest in peace.

OH! Sad news!

I once loved "Jalal Aryan" very much. He was my ideal man in my dreams!
And I followed all Fasih's books one by one...
I lived a long life with his words.

These days we are losing our precious artists in Iran one by one...
It's so sad!
And I am wondering if it is the time...or We are getting old...
