Reading Lolita In Tehran


SYNOPSIS

Every Thursday morning for two years in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Azar Nafisi, a bold and inspired teacher, secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. As Islamic morality squads staged arbitrary raids in Tehran, as fundamentalists seized hold of the universities and a blind censor stifled artistic expression, the girl in Nafisi’s living room risked removing their veils and immersed themselves in the worlds of Jane Austen, F. Scott Firzgerald, Henry James, and Vladimir Nabokov. In this extraordinary memoir, their stories become intertwined with the ones they are reading. spoke not only of the books they were reading but also about themselves, their dreams and disappointments. Reading Lolita in Tehran is a remarkable exploration of resilience in the face of tyranny, and a celebration of the liberating power of literature
