Correspondence Between Ebrahim Golestan and Sadeq Chubak

Letters between Golestan and his close friend Sadeq Chubak (1916-1998) found in the Golestan Archive donated to Stanford's Green Library in 2023. Chubak was a prominent 20th century Iranian author of short stories and novels. These letters include an intimate note from Golestan in 1967 in which he grieves the loss of the iconoclastic feminist poet Forugh Farrokhzad, and a discussion of Chubak's decision to burn all of his unpublished works shortly before his death.
