Equally complex is the character of Rahim. Similarly the illustrative quotes chosen here are merely those the complete review subjectively believes represent the tenor and judgment of the review as a whole. We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be entirely unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure.

The novel begins in modern times. The family is against this marriage, but Sudabeh argues that these are modern times and that a girl should be allowed to do as she wants. Her mother agrees -- but within limits. And so Sudabeh and Mahbubeh sit down together, and the aunt tells her story. Mahbubeh begins her story with the time when she was about fifteen. It was a different time, but her family was already a fairly modern one -- and a cultured and educated one.

At fifteen, it was time to start thinking about marrying off Mahbubeh -- but then she does the unthinkable: she falls in love. And not with some suitable young man, but with a carpenter she has glimpsed in the street, Rahim. Her family tries to bring her to reason, and tries to get rid of Rahim, but there is nothing to be done.

To have their daughter marry such a lowly person is shameful to the family, but finally they see no way out: disgrace will come, no matter what, so best to do it as painlessly as possible.

Rahim and Mahbubeh are allowed to marry, but the family essentially disowns her. They provide her with a small house, and Rahim with a little shop, and they send the nurse over with a bit of money every month, but they forbid Mahbubeh to set foot in the family home as long as she is married to that man.

She has no servants to do the dirty work. Her domestic life pleases her more -- and the future looks brighter, as Rahim promised that, when he had enough money, he would join the military and become an officer. The nasty step-mother becomes a larger presence, and once Mahbubeh and Rahim have a son she moves in permanently. His mother brings out the boor in Rahim. Mahbubeh is also too weak to assume control over her the rearing of her son, who instead is completely in the hands of his grandmother.

She allows him to play in the dirt, spoils him with sweets, and sets him against his mother. It makes Mahbubeh miserable, but she is too weak to do anything about it. Things get worse and worse: Rahim shows no intention of trying to better himself. Their child dies in an accident. Rahim starts sleeping around. Rich and powerful papa can, of course, set almost everything right again, and soon Mahbubeh is living the life she is accustomed to again. Some things can never be set right, but overall there is a happy ending for Mahbubeh -- and a lesson for the next generation, and for Sudabeh in particular.

Bamdad-e Khomar provides a neat panorama of domestic life in Iran. The streets are no place for a woman -- and certainly not for a refined woman such as her. Some of the messages in the book are a bit troubling: Passion is all well and good, but father and mother really do know best. Tradition must be upheld. And, most emphatically: the chasm between the social classes can not be bridged: a manual labourer and an educated woman can never find happiness together.

Still, Haj Seyed Javadi presents an often gripping story. Her inaction on occasion is irritating, but overall she is a fairly believable character.

In trying to make her marriage work, she gives in at the wrong times and for the wrong reasons, but most of her actions are believable if frustrating. Rahim is a less well realized character, remaining almost as much of a mystery to the reader as to Mahbubeh. It is of particular interest because most of the fiction that does reach the West from the so-called closed societies tends to challenge the status quo; Bamdad-e Khomar resolutely affirms it, arguing for tradition and, oddly, for class distinction.

There are no politics in this book, but it is a novel that can find acceptance in contemporary Iran -- and that would probably also have been acclaimed in pre-revolutionary Iran.
