Reading Lolita in Tehran

A memoir about living in the Islamic Republic, and reading English literature.  Mostly in a small, private class consisting of a handful of young women coming to the home of the author, after she had given up her post at the university.

Also hitting on the Iraq-Iran War, the requirements for veils, protests, executions, and more.
