More About This Title A Treatise on Nader Farabi

English

A Treatise on Nader Farabi is the promised story. The novel is a diverse mix of fictional, research, and memoir narratives about an imaginary songwriter, Nader Farabi presented in a postmodern setting. In terms of narrative structure, the novel is deeply avant-garde, and in this respect, it differs from Mastoor's other stories. In an interview, Mahmoud Dolatabadi, the most famous Iranian living writer, compares the form of this work with works of writers like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Akutagawa.
The experience of teaching in a school in downtown with slow-minded students changes Nader's life. Nader was a songwriter before being a teacher and can not easily overpass these students. He is moved by the difference between the slow-minded students and the normal children and then he gets lost. Where is Nader? Why does he get lost? Mastoor does not clearly answer to these questions in the story. He just tries to tell us who Nader Farabi is, and what happened to him before, that leads to this event.
