Beyound of loneliness


Authored by Hossein Radbooei

The "Beyond of loneliness" written by Hossein Radbooei, an Iranian-Canadian writer and ‎a Vancouver B.C. resident, is a novel that provides a vivid illustration to a horrible period of ‎Iran's recent history and a chance to vicariously understand the life of an important segment of ‎Iranian immigrants. Through the memory's flash back of the appealing main character, the reader ‎travels back to Iran during the eighties. The theme of the book is about the life of an activist who ‎lives, and fights for his survival, during one of the most horrible period of the post -revolution ‎Iran. The author in the beginning of the book introduces Hamid as the main character. In the next ‎few pages, Hamid takes his role as the narrator and it is through his lens that the reader gets the ‎effect of the great background of the past, a past which is dead, yet lives with the narrator ‎through its commanding influence upon the present.
The story itself is concerned with the long journey that the narrator, an immigrant from Iran, has ‎had to reach to his new home in Canada; a very common journey for many Iranian immigrants of ‎the Hamid's generation. It is in this journey that the narrator himself personally changes and ‎evolves from a guerilla-like revolutionary young man into a new man; a man who no longer ‎believes in rapid and forceful revolution and political adventurism, and a man who admires many ‎progressive values of the Western democracy and the rule of law in his new home. In so ‎changing, the narrator in the end and in retrospect, and through the lessons of a harsh life, ‎challenges his own past. He began to criticize his own generation and comrades' tendency ‎toward violent revolution and their love for forceful social-political changes.
