Simin Daneshvar, perhaps the most renowned Iranian woman writer of all time, has as a recurring theme in her stories the oppressive atmosphere prevailing in Iran during the last two decades before the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Goli Taraqqi's stories are populated with sick, desperate people who lead lonely lives suffused with fear. The Shemiran Bus and A House in Heaven are virtuoso works of hers, and probably two of the best examples of contemporary prose in Iran. In the words of one critic: 'If Taraqqi had not written anything but these stories, she would still be regarded as first-rate amongst Iranian writers. Others include Shahrnoosh Parsipour, Moniroo Ravanipour, Mahshid Amirshahi, Fereshteh Sari, and Fereshteh Molavi.
