Halabiabad, Tehran 1979-80 Kaveh’s Graphic Novel Excerpt
by KavehAhangarAdel

Excerpt from my new graphic/novel in the works:
Halabiabad, South of Tehran, Circa 1979-80.......
"Hey, wanna hit the ball a bit?" he said after cautiously approaching
me. He said it like a professional footballer, like the ones we see on
TV interviewed after a match.

had a "toop pelastiky do-layeh" (a soccer ball made out of two balls,
one is torn and the other is embedded inside the other--street soccer
ball) tucked under his arm.

gladly accepted because the smell of infection was overpowering in the
double decker bus and I much preferred the sewer smell outside....
