Reading Lolita in Tehran
A Memoir in Books
SummaryAdd a Summary
Every Thursday morning for two years in the Islamic Republic of Iran, a bold and inspired teacher named Azar Nafisi secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. As Islamic morality squads staged arbitrary raids in Tehran, the girls in Azar Nafisi’s living room risked removing their veils and immersed themselves in the worlds of Jane Austen, F. Scott Fitgerald, Henry James and Vladimir Nabokov. This is a remarkable exploration of resilience in the face of tyranny. 356p.
