Synopsis: The Knot in the Rug encapsulates the massive upheavals of the first half of the twentieth century from a point of view that the English-speaking readership rarely glimpses. A gripping read that also sheds light on traditional Persian customs of birth, marriage and death still followed in modern-day Iran The book’s heroine, Khanoum, is in the courts of Persia’s Qajar dynasty. The twists and turns in Khanoum’s life make for a gripping read, whilst at the same time shedding light on traditional Persian customs of birth, marriage and death, still followed in modern-day Iran. Forced to flee Persia during the Constitutional Revolution of 1906, Khanoum is brought up by her uncle and his immediate family. Her teenage years are marked by her struggles: family tragedy, her horrendous journey through Persia, and her uncertain future. Once in Russia her aunt, a woman of great strength and wisdom, manages to bring some sense of order to their exiled gathering by creating a home akin to what they were accustomed to. However, some years later, the Bolshevik revolution brings another upheaval and they flee once more; this time to Istanbul. In the fairy-tale palaces of the Ottoman Empire Khanoum marries a member of the Ottoman Court. But the newlyweds hardly have time to make plans for their future when they face yet more turmoil; learning of the downfall of the ruling family, they hurriedly escape to France. In Paris with her husband, Khanoum at last finds a resting place, but it does not take long before her eventful and tragic destiny once again beckons and she finds herself alone and destitute. The story contains a rich and compelling record of how these historic events affected the lives of a group of people from different parts of the world. It presents an overview of the fabric of the Iranian society with an emphasis on the last century’s privileged class.

About the Author: MASOUD BEHNOUD, a prominent Iranian journalist, historian and writer, was born on July 27, 1947 in Tehran. He has written six books on the contemporary history of Iran. His trilogy of books, Ameeneh, Khanoum [The Knot in the Rug] and The Broken Urn, is aimed at familiarizing the reader with the history of Iran and prominent international events going from the eighteenth century up to present times.
