Her Eyes Novel

The author of “Her Eyes” is Bozorg Alavi. Bozorg Alavi was an influential Iranian writer, novelist, and political intellectual. Bozorg Alavi was a founding member of the communist Tudeh Party of Iran in the 1940s and – following the 1953 coup against Premier Mohammad Mossadegh – spent the rest of his life in exile in Germany, first during the Pahlavi regime, then returning to Germany once more following the 1979 revolution. Cheshm’hā’yash (Her Eyes), which was published in Iran in 1952 and was subsequently banned, is considered his finest novel. Alavi was also a very close friend of Iran’s famous writer Sadegh Hedayat; these two created a literary group when they were residing in Paris called “sab’e group”. Although Her Eyes is considered his masterpiece, ShopiPersia, is the largest website that sells Persian books and world famous books with Persian translation.
