Bijan and Manije

by Ali Seidabadi, illustrated by Marjan Vafaian
£12.99   hardback  Tiny Owl Publishing Ltd (2016)

Bijan and Manije by Ali Seidabadi, illustrated by Marjan Vafaian Bijan & Manije is a beautiful story of love across the divide, reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, but with a distinctive Persian flavour.
 
A twist of fate brings Bijan face to face with the daughter of his enemy. They fall in love and refuse to abandon each other, even under duress. Can Iran’s greatest knight, Rostam, help save the day and bring warring nations to peace?
 
The story of Bijan and Manije is one of the ancient epic stories of Shahnameh (Book of Kings). Ferdowsi, the 10th century Persian poet, gathered the historical stories and myths of Persia in the form of poem in Shahnameh. The Book of Kings was traditionally the base of Pardekhani, a type of storytelling for the public where illustrations were made on large canvases and a narrator read the poems to the audience in coffeehouses and streets.
