IBNA- A novel by the American writer Chloe Benjamin ‘The Immortalists’, the story of ‎those who became aware of their deaths has been translated into Persian and published. ‎
‎‘The Immortalists’ focuses on death premonition  ‎
According to IBNA correspondent, the book which is one of the two novels written by Chloe Benjamin along with ‘The Anatomy of Dreams’ has been translated into Persian by Zahra Hossein Tabrizi and released by Elmi Publishing.
‘The Immortalists’ is centered on a premise: If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life?
It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children—four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness—sneak out to hear their fortunes.
The prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11; and bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality.
‘The Immortalists’ probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next. It is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the nature of belief, and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds.
Benjamin is the author of the novel ‘The Anatomy of Dreams’, which received the Edna Ferber Fiction Book Award and was longlisted for the 2014 Center for Fiction First Novel Prize. A San Francisco native, Benjamin is a graduate of Vassar College and of the University of Wisconsin, where she received her MFA in fiction.
