When he was a boy, Aga Akbar, the deaf-mute illegitimate son of a Persian nobleman, traveled with his uncle to a cave on nearby Saffron Mountain. Once there, he was to copy a three-thousand-year-old cuneiform inscription-an order of the first king of Persia-as a means of freeing himself from his emotional confinement. For the remainder of his life, Aga Akbar used these cuneiform characters to fill a notebook with writings only he could understand. Years later, his son, Ishmael-a political dissident in exile-is attempting to translate the notebook. . and in the process tells his father s story, his own, and the story of twentieth-century Iran. A stunning and ambitious novel by a singular literary talent, «My Father s Notebook» is at once a masterful chronicle of a culture s troubled voyage into modernity and the poignant, timeless tale of a son s enduring love.
