Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
by Azar Nafisi
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard going., 1 July 2015
I bought this book at my local Oxfam shop which is my hunting ground for books. It is poorly written as it attempts to be a literary excursion about several writers to begin with chiefly Nabakov and at the same time discuss the life and times in Iran from a university lecturer's point of view in the 1990s. It is more fact than fiction and not even faction. It fails on both as not all readers would have read Nabakov's Lolita prior to reading this book and not all readers would be knowledgeable about the Iranian revolution. Having read Austen and Fitzgerald, the latter the complete works again thanks to my Oxfam shop I might have a better chance later on but having reached page 48 and still suffering from ennui I must say not a very good book pretending to be a novel. Also here is another example why Iran is in such a sorry state. If the intellectuals are so divorced from the 'revolting masses' no wonder then that they are also rejected. Humility instead of hubris; understanding instead of condemnation.
