One of Iran's bestselling novelists has died.
Iraj Pezeshkzad died January 12 at age ninety-four, reports the New York Times.
He was the author of seventeen novels and more than a dozen books and essays; his best-known work was likely My Uncle Napoleon.
That satirical novel, published in 1970 and inspired in some ways by the author's own uncle, remains a bestseller in Iran despite the years that have passed.
