Négar Djavadi’s Disoriental (translated by Tina Kover, review copy courtesy of Europa Editions) is a story told by a young woman in Paris. We start at a fertility clinic, where Kimiâ immediately outs herself as someone a little unusual. In the midst of her description of the clinic, she makes a few claims distinguishing herself from the other people waiting patiently for their turn. She’s the only one sitting there alone, and, if we’re to take her at her word, the only one there under false pretences.
Négar Djavadi was born in Iran in 1969 to a family of intellectuals opposed to the regimes both of the Shah, then of Khomeini. She arrived in France at the age of eleven, having crossed the mountains of Kurdistan on horseback with her mother and sister. She is a screenwriter and lives in Paris. Disoriental is her first novel.
Mrs. Negar Djavadi is glad to share with you the first few pages of his book, so you won’t be able to stop reading! Read and enjoy Disoriental.
