Book Club on Line
1 ( a madar)


Is there any persian book club on line. Last summer I went back to Iran and found a great book written by Mr. Mahmood Dolat Abady. The name of the book is Claydar and I would like to find out how other people felt about the book and how much of it is based on truth. If you can help me with this I appreciate it.

I read claydar 10 years ago when I was in college . I absolutely loved it . I felt it is base on true story . It sounded so real . Is there any other books similar to this ?

This book seems to be a historical novel. It is about people in the north eastern part of Iran. It takes place in the city of Sabzevar. The hero is a nomadic tribesman who is forced into the city to beg for a living after losing his livestock to drought. The emphasis of the book is on Iranian tribal culture. I purchased a copy of this book while in Iran. If anyone is aware of similar books, please contact me.

Dear friends,

You can also find books and regional business directories via www.payvand.com > go to: "Interesting websites" > go to: the section on: "Books".

Over there you will see a listing of Online bookstores along with a list of books they have to offer in their respected webpages.

You can also contact these bookstores directly via email and ask for more specific information.

Thank you all for the good information regarding books and bookstores. This is great! I don't think any phone book could give me as much info as you guys did!!

Have a good one!
