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.
Stranger’s Guide is themed around a single destination—Russia, the Great Plains, Mexico City or Shanghai. By choosing to concentrate on just one place, Stranger’s Guide will allow us to stop, be still and delve into each location’s complexities. Readers will save these objets d’art on their bookshelves, lend them to friends and continue to page through the issues for years to come.Stranger’s Guide consists of intelligent and luminously written essays by noted writers. Its sleek design emphasizes art and photography.
Each issue is packed with maps, fiction and unconventional travel tips alongside beautiful, serious storytelling that takes you around the world. Our e-newsletter will offer a weekly mini-magazine, examining different themes across cultures. Throughout everything, beautiful, thoughtful narratives will guide you around the world.
“Stranger’s Guide is ideal for its luscious photo spreads, and its features go deep into subcultures that, until now, only the luckiest of strangers might discover.”
“…a one-of-a-kind travel magazine, with a literary vibe that calls to mind Lapham’s Quarterly and McSweeney‘s”
“A stunning magazine”
