The Small Press Fiction Book Club's upcoming meeting on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, at 7:00 PM at Lost City Books in Washington, DC, promises an engaging discussion around Mahsa Mohebali's "In Case of Emergency," translated by Mariam Rahmani. Published by The Feminist Press, renowned for its commitment to diverse and thought-provoking literature, this novel offers a poignant exploration of societal collapse, addiction, and identity in contemporary Tehran. Through the character of Shadi, disillusioned and addicted to opium, the narrative delves into the chaos of a city in turmoil and the personal struggles within dysfunctional relationships. Mohebali's darkly humorous and satirical portrayal of Iranian counterculture provides a compelling lens through which to examine themes of authoritarianism, capitalism, and gender roles. Attendees can anticipate a stimulating discussion of this groundbreaking work.
