The girls from Afghanistan

Tales of war and of love woven into the knots of a rug

Translation by Katherine Margaret Clifton

Hossein, rug merchant, an Italian citizen of Iranian birth, he went to his country of origin in order to buy new goods. Turns out that the market moving carpets with designs ever seen, and his investigation leads him to Dogharon, the refugee camp where thousands of Afghans have fled after the Soviet invasion of their land. Here he met Azar and Ozra, with their 'carpets narrative', woven with symbols that tell their painful stories and that of the Afghan people.

Hossein Fayaz in this story, made ​​up of many stories that intersect like knots in a carpet, addresses a number of topical issues, telling Iranian customs of the people who live on the border of Europe and have always been the interlocutors of the Europeans, and we know very little about them in the West.
The author, for each episode is narrated, is inspired by real life. The book is not an autobiography, but often the moments that have a direct connection with the theme of the story are retraced.

The book is enriched by three substantial final chapters: "Glossary of terminology Persian (Farsi Dari) used in the story", "History of the most important historical events that took place in Iran and Afghanistan, from 1499 to the Present" and "A Conversation with Hossein Fayaz ".
