The Stationary Shop of Tehran by Marjan Kamali

The Stationary Shop of Tehran by Marjan Kamali hit the shelves in 2019. It is a work of historical fiction. The book has been published by Simon & Schuster Ltd.

In a small shop in a country on the brink of unrest, two people meet for the very first time. Roya loves nothing better than to while away the hours in the stationery shop run by Mr. Fakhri. The store, stocked with fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and thick wads of writing paper, also carries translations of literature from all over the world. Bahman, with his burning passion for justice, is like no one else she has ever met. But all around them, as their relationship blossoms, life in Tehran is changing. Suddenly, shockingly, violence erupts a coup d’etat that forever changes their country’s future, as well as their own.
