A fascinating and funny portrait of daily life in Tehran, with all its complexities and contradictions, as seen through the eyes of a woman returned to her native country from France, trying to renew her passport
 
In a wry and humorous account of Nahal Tajadod's week-long quest to get her Iranian passport renewed, she embarks on a bizarre and circuitous journey, meeting a colorful cast of characters along the way: two photographers who specialize in Islamic portraits, a forensic surgeon who trades in human organs, and a grandmother who offers a live chicken to an implacable official. This is a fascinating look at the constraints and contradictions of contemporary life in Tehran from the author's unique standpoint of being both a native of Iran and a foreigner.

Nahal Tajadod was born in Tehran in 1960 and moved to France in 1971. She is the author of the fictional biography Rumi: The Fire of Love. Adriana Hunter is the English translator of such titles as The Girl Who Played Go, How I Became Stupid, and The Sexual Life of Catherine M. She has been short-listed for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize several times.
