Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books by Azar Nafisi
Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books

mirandacryns, August 4, 2012

At 27 years old, I am a high school English teacher. Every day there is something that I realize I have no idea about, either Im too young to have experienced it, too old to be hip to it, or was too busy in high school and college following my passions to become well rounded. Either way, I have to praise this memoir for inspiring me, I have been urged to learn 40 years of Iranian history and custom, our current international relationship with the middle east, and how to teach memoir in a meaningful way. This book is beautiful and scary, Nafisi's voice echos brilliantly from the stories of being silenced. This book is beloved.
