About the Author
Avat Poorabdollahi was born in 1989 in a city 600 kilometres west of Tehran. He spent his pre-school years in a village with his grandparents, far away from his family, and along with two goats which, in his words, were dearer to him than his two brothers (Report from Pooneh, from the collection of reports "Weakness and Fainting", published in spring 2015, Mindmotor Electronic Publishing). When he was nineteen, he entered Khajeh Nasir University in Tehran to study Electrical Engineering. After a year, he was selected as the editor-in-chief of "Galavij" political journal. In 2011, he was summoned by the Ministry of Intelligence for issue No. 10 of the journal, and was detained for a few days. Following that, he was dismissed from the university and from everything for a year. In that year, he learned to ramble and read more books. To make a living, he started translating from English to Farsi, but he says he earned his living more by writing love letters for young boys and girls. He started writing literary notes. It was around the same time that he returned to the university and after completion of his Electrical Engineering, he took the entrance exam in philosophy. He was admitted and started studying a Master's programme in "Philosophy of Science" at Polytechnic University. He says he is a report writer finding the material for his reports in rubbish bins, corners of the city, death announcements, wanderings, sewers and words of vagrants whom no one , even themselves, have enough energy to live with their forsaken emotions. So far, two collections of reports (collections of stories), a few translations and three other reports have been published from him. Mindmotor Electronic Publishing published his collections of reports "Weakness and Fainting" and "Helplessness of Ahmad Panahipoor" [a pun on Panahipoor's last name which means "providing shelter"]. In 2016 and one month after publishing "Helplessness of Ahmad Panahipoor", He packed his backpack and went toward people's revolution against religious and nationalistic reactionaryism in northern Syria, left Philosophy of Science unfinished, spent some time with the Kurd and Arab guerrilla in Iraq and Turkey mountains. The three reports "Cuckoo flew out of the Cage", "Perspectives of the Taste of the Mountain" and "Persecutions of the Oil Field" are fruits of this trip and living with the guerrilla. These reports were published in spring 2016 and under the pseudonym "Havar Avat".
