In this essay the blending of story and discourse in postmodern Persian fictions is analyzed. According to structuralist narratologists' definition, story is the sequence of actions upon to chronological order that characters or existents undergo them; Discourse or narrative discourse is the medium that is selected for narrating the story. In some postmodern fictions, we see some narratives that in their stories or deep-structures, there is not a rich story, and the author don’t want to just narrate, represent or mimic a story. In these narratives, surface-structure and deep-structure (or discourse and story) is blending and spinning so that we cannot summaries that story, or transmit that story to another medium. In the other hand, story existence is depended to narrative discourse. Such narrative technique is evident in some postmodern Persian fictions. In this essay, in addition to discussing the blending of story and discourse, Persian fictions that had this trait are analyzed.
