If you’re looking for a final summer read or a book to carry you into the fall, please consider my friend Moniro Ravanipour’s The Drowned. The book, originally written in Persian and well received in her homeland Iran, has been translated into English (I helped edit that version) and is now available on Amazon.com. What struck me most about the book is its effective use of magical realism and its vivid depiction of the people, customs and myths of a village on the Persian Gulf.
