- Persian Classics
- By: Simin Daneshvar, M.R. Ghanoonparvar (translator), Brian Spooner (introduction)
- Narrated by: Mary Sarah Agliotta, Brian Spooner

Savushun chronicles the life of a Persian family during the Allied occupation of Iran during World War II. It is set in Shiraz, a town which evokes images of Persepolis and pre-Islamic monuments, the great poets, the shrines, Sufis, and nomadic tribes within a historical web of the interests, privilege, and influence of foreign powers; corruption, incompetence, and arrogance of persons in authority; the paternalistic landowner-peasant relationship; tribalism; and the fear of famine.
