Touba and the Meaning of Night is written from a distinctly Iranian viewpoint, and in it, Parsipur explores the ongoing tensions between rationalism and mysticism, tradition and modernity, male dominance and female will. The book was written by Shahrnush Parsipur and translated by Kamran Talattof, and has been named as one of the top ten books on Iran by The Guardian.
