Farewell anniversary with Houshang Golshiri

Golshiri began writing fiction in the late 1950s. His publication of short stories in Payam-e Novin and elsewhere in the early 1960s, his establishment of Jong-e Esfahan (1965 – 1973), the chief literary journal of the day published outside, and his participation in efforts to reduce official censorship of imaginative literature brought him a reputation in literary circles.
