New Works on Book Shelves

Translation of a book containing an interview with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and translations of two novels by Patrick McCabe and William Butler Yeats are among the latest popular releases on book shelves.
‘The Fragrance of Guava’ written by Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza includes a long interview with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Colombian novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter, journalist, and the winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature, Honaronline reported.  
Translated by Lili Golestan, the book was published for the first time in 1983 by Nashr-e No publication, while this time another publisher, i.e. Nashr-e Markaz has published the book.
In these conversations, Marquez speaks about his family background, his early travels and struggles as a writer, his literary antecedents, and his personal artistic concerns, with a powerful use of language, as in his own works.
He also explains why and how he employed ‘Magic Realism’ - a genre where magical or unreal elements play a natural part in an otherwise realistic or mundane environment, often associated with Marquez.   
‘The Butcher Boy’ is a novel by Patrick McCabe, Irish writer, translated into Persian by Peyman Khaksar and published for the second time.

  Must Read  
Winner of the 1992 Irish Times Literature Prize for Fiction, ‘The Butcher Boy’ is listed among the 100 novels “everyone must read before they die.”
Written by a well-known Irish writer beside James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Flann O’Brien, the book tells the story of a schoolboy who retreats into madness as his troubled home life collapses, said Khaksar.  
“The novel is written in a hybrid of first-person narrative and stream of consciousness,” he added.  
Finally, ‘The Cat and the Moon’, written by William Butler Yeats translated into Persian by Farid Ghadami, was published after a wait of two years before it was allowed to be published.
This is the second play by Yeats translated into Persian. The book also contains an introduction to the life and works of Yeats as well as an analysis of the play.
