A compelling tale of a remarkable woman during a tumultuous period in the history of a great civilization. Masoud Behnoud has done for Iran what Hugo did for France, what Tolstoy did for Russia and what armies of writers are still trying to do for America.
International Qajar Studies Association
If words are magic then Behnoud is the magician of the sublime. He conjures up a world long vanished and through Khanoum allows us to be part of that world too ... In Behnoud Iranians have a national treasure to proudly call their own.
Book Self Description
Masoud Behnoud's The Knot in the Rug is an epic tale of life, love, loss, and loyalty. The book’s heroine, a Persian princess named Khanoum is forced to leave the comfort of her aristocratic Qajar home and flee for Europe. Born in 1900 Khanoum lives through massive upheavals of the twentieth century including the Second World War and the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Ever resourceful, she faces her ordeals with compassion, grace and a childlike sense of humour.
