Cover ArtReading Lolita in Tehran : a memoir in books
by Nafisi, Azar
Set in Tehran, where women are more property than people, Azar Nafisi creates a book discussion group with 7 of her students. This group slowly grows from a discussion of litterature to a discussion of morals, freedom and womens rights centered on the views and stories of western classics. This book is enjoyable not only for its story of eight women and their struggle to maintain dignity and integrity in the face of oppression but also for its intertwining commentary on some of the most influential western novels and how they relate to the real world. I recommend this book to all teen and adult readers.   posted Aug 11, 2005
