Reza Baraheni

“Reza Baraheni is chronicler of his nation’s torture industry, and poet of his nation’s secret police force.” —E.L. Doctorow

Reza Baraheni, the founder of modem literary criticism in Iran, was kidnapped in 1973 by SAVAK, the Iranian government’s secret police. During the 102 days of his imprisonment, he was repeatedly tortured and beaten in an attempt to secure information and to make him admit to some undescribed political treason. Released in December of that year through the efforts of European and American writers, he now lives in exile in New York.

In The Crowned Cannibals Baraheni writes on terror in Iran, the problems of nationality groups and women in that country, the Shah, the situation of Iranian writers. The volume also contains most of his recent, hauntingly disturbing poetry.
