Wendover author Tajalli Keshavarz returns with a compelling new novel
In Memories of Now, Wendover author Tajalli Kesahvarz writes a compelling novel of fluid memories, relationships and regrets.
It is winter. Seven university friends reunite in a country hotel in Scotland. Over dinners, drinks and walks, they face their dilemmas, their emotions and the stories they hadn’t told themselves over the years.
As banal games and conversations turn to bickering and arguments, the friends must face their actions and question their thoughts, values and moralities. Personal and social events are remembered, religion and faith are interrogated, and expectations, doubts and death are confronted.
“As an Iranian living in the UK and abroad for a long time, my new experiences have merged with my old memories driving me with an urge to share my feelings through writing,” explains Tajalli of his latest novel. “Over the last 40 years, Iran has experienced significant changes that have affected so many lives. I see similar events all around the world that will impact upon future generations. These observations are my motives for writing Memories of Now.”
Born in Iran, Tajalli Keshavarz has lived in the UK for most of the last 40 years and is now based in Buckinghamshire. Memories of Now is his fourth fiction title. He has also published three volumes of poetry in Persian.
