Shahrnush Parsipur began a literary career in 1974 with the publication of the novel “The Dog and the Long Winter”. She has since published several more works of fiction, including the acclaimed novels “Tuba and the Meaning of Night” and “Women without Men”. Her work has been translated into several languages including English, Swedish, Spanish, Italian, French, Malayalam among others.


Shahrnush’s other titles include, “Prison Memoir”, based on her memories of jail, and the philosophical novel “Aqle Abi” (The Blue Reason, 1989), which was published in the US and Sweden, but never in Iran. She is also the author of what might be Iran’s first science fiction novel, “Shiva Bar Baaleh Badd Neshestan” (On the Wings of Wind); and two short story collections. Shahrnush has also published widely as a critic and essayist.


In recent years, Parsipur has held several writing seminars in US.  She is the recipient of the first International Writers Project Fellowship from the Program in Creative Writing and the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University. She is also the recipient of the Lillian Hellman/Dashell-Hammet award.


She currently lives in the United States of America as a political refugee.
