Kheyme-shab-baazi: Puppet Show

This Book “Kheyme-shab-baazi: Puppet Show” by Sadegh Choubak. Sadegh Chubak (Bušehr, 5 August 1916;), one of most acclaimed Persian short story writers and novelists of the 20th century. His father Hāj Esmāʿil was an affluent merchant, trading primarily with India and Great Britain. Following his military service, he was first employed in 1940 as a cashier in the Ministry of Finance and later as an interpreter for the American economic advisors who had come to Iran. After World War II, Chubak taught English for a few years in various language institutes and schools, and also worked as a translator at the Information Department of the British Embassy in Tehran for two years. From 1949, he was employed by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, and after the nationalization of oil industries in 1951 continued working for the National Iranian Oil Company as its head librarian until 1974, when he retired. Chubak spent a few years of his early retirement in England and in 1979 moved to the United States, where he lived to the end of his life in El Cerrito, near Berkeley, California. Sadeq Chubak’s fame as a writer began with the publication of Ḵeyma-šab-bāzi (The Puppet Show, 1945), a collection of eleven short stories, which provoked a mixed reception. It was praised for its accurate portrayal of the more lurid and unpleasant aspects of life in Iran, which exhibits the author’s descriptive power and controlled technique, and harshly criticized for its “pestilential naturalism”, and for the failure of the author to present a true picture of the Iranian society. The stories are marked by the author’s choice of characters from among the lowest strata of society, his meticulous reproduction of colloquial Persian, and his accurate description of the scenes, actions, and behavior of characters.
