Just bought The Blind Owl (Authorized by The Sadegh Hedayat Foundation - First Translation into English Based on the Bombay Edition) Paperback – 1 Nov. 2011by Sadegh Hedayat  (Author), Naveed Noori (Translator). I will really need to keep away from Goodreads recommendations, 🙂 the TBR was out of control a long time ago!

I almost bought the Blind Owl but a YouTube Reviewer (whom I generally respect) wasn't very impressed so I was put off. 

 

I'd appreciate a second opinion. Let me know what you think.

I will.

 

ETA  From the research that I did this book hangs on the translation. Apparently the D.P. Costello translation is good but doesn't really give the nuances needed for the book (so they say!)
