Reading Lolita in Tehran



A well-written but slow-moving memoir of repression and subversion in Iran, from a former English professor there. A lot of the book is an explanation of the political situation since 1979 as experienced by university students and faculty, and most of the rest is Nafisi’s own story and eventual decision to leave Iran.
