Armed with a magical microscope and a pair of reversed binocular, a poetic Persian physician looks at the colourful cross-sections of his symmetrically bisected life-35 years spent in Iran and 35 years in Canada-to narrates them with the incisive prose of an anatomic pathologist to produce a modern Persian epic in the form of a segmented letter to his dead mother in Iran.

About the Author:

Borne in March 1930 in Tehran, Iran. Soon after he was born in the capital city of Iran, Tehran, he was taken along with the rest of his large family to the dusty city of Torbat Heidarieh and the religious city of Mashad- two cities in the eastern province of Iran, Khorassan, near the rusty mountains of Afghanistan- to spend his formative years of infancy. 1936: Brought back to Tehran at the age of six, where he did all of his formal education and went through the elementary school of Kherad, high school of Sharaf, Faculty of Medicine, and Ghasr prison. The latter happened when he was in the fifth year of medical school while he was also in the army. It happened because of his eagerness for freedom and disagreement with some of the policies of the last Shah of Iran. Summer of 1955- He was freed simultaneously from prison, the army and revolutionary thoughts to finish the last year of his medicine. He became a physician on October 1957. 1957 to 1959-He did his two compulsory years of out-of-the-capital-city practice in the cement factory of the city of Dorood in Iran.- later married Mitra, the beautiful daughter of the builder of that Factory, Mr. A.J. Khazaei, when he was not the head of that factory anymore. Returned to Tehran in 1959 and opened his private clinic in Shemiran on the lap of the chain of Alborz Mountains that separate Tehran from the sandy shores of the Caspian Sea. He saw his few private patients in the evenings. He worked as a general practitioner for the medically insured workers in the mornings, and practised psychiatry in the afternoons. Summer of 1965-Six years later he took the hand of his wife and picked up their eighteen-month old son, Kamran, to immigrate to Canada to specialize. He moved straight from Tehran to Winnipeg and did four years of residency in the department of pathology at Winnipeg General Hospital, long before it changed its name to Health Sciences Centre,
