House Museum of Jalal & Simin, two renowned Iranian novelists, was inaugurated in Tehran.
The brick house in the northern neighborhood of Dezashib once housed the literary couple: novelist, short story writer and translator Jalal Al-e Ahmad (1923-69) and novelist, fiction writer and translator Simin Daneshvar (1921-2012).
The museum opened on April 28, coinciding with the birth anniversary of Daneshvar. The two-story house, covering an area of 250 square meters, underwent a lengthy restorative operation and is now open to the public, IRNA reported.
It is located at No. 1, Arz Dead-End on Ramezani Street. Al-e Ahmad and Daneshvar named their alley after Lesan-Arz, a graveyard in Isfahan where Daneshvar’s parents are buried.
