As US-Iran relations continue to make headlines, Stranger’s Guide: Tehran brings readers to the streets of a city few outsiders have had the opportunity to explore. Through new works from Dina Nayeri, Jason Rezaian, and a number of up-and-coming authors, the issue explores the public and private lives of residents of the Iranian capital. Go to a night of avant-garde theater where political discourse comes cloaked in artistic metaphor; journey with two sisters as they traverse the city to attend a soccer match for the first time; discover the generation gap between old revolutionaries and young students pushing for a new future. It’s a deep and nuanced look at this complex city.
