IBNA- Women's fiction, 'One Minute to Midnight' by Zimbabwe-born British author Paula Hawkins, a light and engaging book on human feelings and friendship has been published in Persian and is available in Iranian bookstores.
With her pen name Amy Silver, Hawkins published this book in 2011. 'One Minute to Midnight' has been translated into Persian by Parisa Rezaei and released by Eejaz Publishing in Tehran in 316 pages and 700 copies.
Persian translator Rezaei says on the work: “This novel is one of those books that may not be judged by the cover. Seemingly a simple book, it grabs the reader's attention as he/she cannot easily put it aside. This is a very emotional book about love, hope, constant friendships in teen years, the feeling of insecurity as a result of living in troubled families, the loss of loved ones and death.”
