I have read a translation of a short story in Farsi but i cannot find the author. The story is about a man called Francis who is a political criminal and is going to be executed tomorrow. As he is worried about his old mom, Francis calls one his jail-mates and asks him to play his role for his mother, on account of his mother being hard of hearing and sight. He does not want his mother to know that he has been executed so he kills himself by hanging that night, because he is a political criminal and after the execution his family should pay the price of bullets which were used to execute him. The story is told by his jail mate. The name of the jail guard is Edward.

Can anybody help me on this?
