IBNA- The debut novel by American zoologist and writer Delia Owens 'Where the Crawdads Sing' which is a New York Times best-selling has been translated into Persian and published.
According to IBNA correspondent, an engaging narrative of a murder mystery, coming of age and praising nature, the novel has been translated into Persian by Artemis Mas’oudi and released by Amut Publishing.
Synopsis of 'Where the Crawdads Sing' reads: “For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl.
But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved.”
In her novel, Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.
Owens has also written the memoirs ‘Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of the Elephant’, and ‘Secrets of the Savanna’, with her then-husband, Mark, about their time studying animals in Africa.
She is the co-founder of the Owens Foundation for Wildlife Conservation in Stone Mountain, GA. She has also worked as a roving editor for International Wildlife, lectured throughout North America, and has participated in conservation efforts for the grizzly bear throughout the United States
