In practice, it means when someone comes to your house, you have to offer them food; but since your guest is supposed to taarof, they have to refuse; and then you, the host, must taarof back, insisting that it’s really no trouble at all, and that they absolutely must eat; and so on, until one party gets too bewildered and finally gives in… It’s not an American Social Cue.

She really did want something to drink, but she didn’t know how to go about asking.”

I hated how Sohrab had a larger share of my grandmother’s life than I did.”
