Reading Lolita in Tehran, by Azar Nafisi. 60 pages in, it's fascinating.
Sounds like a text born from a title. Never heard of it, but I could probably write a synopsis of it anyway.
Do the chapters like the title (or it is too sophisticated to have chapters and has sections or worse yet, scenes) allude to "Western" works or authors who offer petite bourgeois "revolution"?
And I am going to guess it is a memoir. I don't know Arabic, so I am also going to guess it is a woman. Life before, during, after revolution? Is she a Professor and decided to become some sort of self-exiled voice of freedom and the true Iran?
We had some professors like that at the Universities I went to. I love folks who are self-exiled.
Anyway, sounds awful. At least my version. I am going to stop thinking about it now. Let me know, if I am wrong.
