Translated into Persian by Mahmoud Soltanieh, North is a 1960 novel by the French writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline which has been published by Jami in Iran.
The story is based on Céline's escape from France to Denmark after the invasion of Normandy, after he had been associated with the Vichy regime. It is the second published part, although chronologically the first, in a trilogy about these experiences; it was preceded by Castle to Castle from 1957, and followed by Rigadoon, published posthumously in 1969. It was the last book Céline published during his lifetime.
