Brief descriptions of the gift books for our donors:

--Shusha Guppy (nee Assar), who passed away in March of 2008, was representative of generations of Iranians who while deeply steeped in their own traditions and rooted firmly in the soil of Iran, made their way westward and became bridges between the old country and the new ones where they now made their homes. Shusha embodied the best of Iranian culture and the best of Western culture as well. She blended these worlds effortlessly and left us testaments to her talent in her songs and her writings. The Blindfold Horse is a moving example of her evocative power and stirs deep memories of a bygone era in the reader.

--Persian Poets is a collection of poetry from Omar Khayyam to Sana'i, Attar, Rumi, Hafez, Sa'adi and others, beautifully produced by Everyman's Library Pocket Poets (Afred A. Knopf). It includes portraits by Abol Hassan Ghaffari of of Nasser-ed-Din Shah and Emam Qoli Mirza E'mad-ed-Dowleh (Dowlatshahi) on the dustjacket.
