Publisher Description:

In the aftermath of Iran's 2009 election, a woman undertakes a search for the statues disappearing from Tehran's public spaces. A chance meeting alters her trajectory, and the space between fiction and reality narrows. As she circles the city's points of connection--teahouses, buses, galleries, hookah bars--her many questions are distilled into one: How do we translate loss into language?

Melding several worlds, perspectives, and narrative styles, trans(re)lating house one translates the various realities of Tehran and its inhabitants into the realm of art, helping us remember them anew.
