“Fault Lines” appears in Iranian bookstores

February 20, 2019

TEHRAN – Canadian writer Nancy Huston’s 2006 novel “Fault Lines” has recently been published in Persian by Nimaj Publications in Tehran.

Translated by Fariba Majidi, the book tells the story of the highly gifted six-year-old Sol, who has the same birthmark that his father, grandmother and great-grandmother had before him. 

Narrated by children in each generation of the family, “Fault Lines” traces their history back through the years from California to New York, from Haifa to Toronto and Munich.

The book won the Femina Prize, a French literary award, as well as the Prix Goncourt: “the Polish choice” and the Prix France Televisions.
