Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
by Azar Nafisi
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars good after the Nabakovy beginning, 1 July 2015
I bought this book at my local Oxfam shop which is my hunting ground for books. 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 if the reader survives the ' Nabakovy' part at the beginning then it is a joy to read. . 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 - BUT NOW I am re writing this review as I have reached page 271 and must admit that I like this book and found it mildly entertaining. The author becomes more sympathetic to the common man as she goes on in the book which is a good point for a privileged doctor of literature. While she was walking the pavements of Tehran and working as a lecturer others with just as good qualifications in Medicine , Engineering and the Arts were unemployed and would have been happy to earn a living. Finally for the avid reader it opens up lots of doors. As an after thought she could have taught The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck or Old Man and The Sea or For Whom the Bells Toll to keep the revolutionaries happy. America has at least two sides just as Iran has many sides. Humility Instead of hubris, Compassion instead of condemnation.
