Iran’s distinguished Armenian composer and conductor Loris Tjeknavorian said he intends to write his autobiography.

He will compile his memories in a book titled ‘Magasestan’ (literally means fly land), containing 30 short stories on flies, reported.

The book is similar to his previous book, a collection of 31 comic stories titled ‘Kharestan’ (literally, ‘donkey land’), whose protagonists and antagonists are donkeys.

“Writing diaries is difficult and takes long time,” he said, “I have had several experiences to write upon in 85 years of my life.”

The conductor argued that life is a journey and he likes to write the travelogue.

“I am a conductor and I write compositions, but if I have the opportunity, I will write stories and paint,” he said, noting that I write books to relax the soul and mind.

“Tjeknavorian has written a satire that literature students may call grotesque,” writer Mahmoud Dowlatabadi has previously said on ‘Kharestan’, adding that grotesque is usually a description of something that is comically or repulsively ugly or distorted.
