      Cette idée semblait tracasser la veuve Chuchanik, notre logeuse, qui nous rendait souvent visite : qu'on vienne – d'aussi loin et de plein gré – s'installer ici lui paraissait saugrenu.
      — This idea seemed to worry the widow Chuchanik, our landlady, who often came to see us: it seemed preposterous to her that we should have come so far, and of our own free will, to settle in Tabriz. — 1992, Robyn Marsack (trans.), The Way of the World, 2011 ed., Eland, ISBN 978-1-78060-090-1
