    “Resonant and deeply affecting . . . an eloquent brief on the transformative
    powers of fiction–on the refuge from ideology that art can
    offer to those living under tyranny, and art’s affirmative and subversive
    faith in the voice of the individual.”
    –MICHIKO KAKUTANI, The New York Times

    “[A] vividly braided memoir . . . Anguished and glorious.”
    –CYNTHIA OZICK, The New Republic

    “Certain books by our most talented essayists . . . carry inside their covers
    the heat and struggle of a life’s central choice being made and the
    price being paid, while the writer tells us about other matters, and
    leaves behind a path of sadness and sparkling loss. Reading Lolita in
    is such a book.” –MONA SIMPSON, The Atlantic Monthly

    “A poignant, searing tale about the secret ways Iranian women defy the
    regime. . . . [Nafisi] makes you want to rush back to all these books to
    experience the hidden aspects she’s elucidated.” –Salon

    “A quietly magnificent book . . . [Nafisi’s] passion is irresistible.”
    LA Weekly

    “Azar Nafisi’s memoir makes a good case for reading the classics of
    Western literature no matter where you are. . . . [Her] perspective on
    her students’ plight, the ongoing struggle of Iranian citizens, and her
    country’s violent transformation into an Islamic state will provide
    valuable insights to anyone interested in current international events.”
    –HEATHER HEWETT, The Christian Science Monitor

    “An intimate memoir of life under a repressive regime and a celebration
    of the vitality of literature . . . as rich and profound as the novels
    Nafisi teaches.” –The Miami Herald

    “An inspiring account of an insatiable desire for intellectual freedom.”
    –USA Today

    “Transcends categorization as memoir, literary criticism or social history,
    though it is superb as all three . . . Nafisi has produced an original
    work on the relationship between life and literature.”
    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    “Nafisi’s passion for books is infectious, and her description of the
    effect of the revolution on its people is unforgettable.”
    –Rocky Mountain News

    “[A] sparkling memoir . . . a spirited tribute both to the classics of
    world literature and to resistance against oppression.”
    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

    “Nafisi artfully intertwines her own coming-of-age in pre-Revolutionary
    Tehran with the daily frustrations of her pupils. . . . [She] relates her
    girls’ moving stories with great sympathy.” –Entertainment Weekly

    “[Nafisi] reminds us why we read in the first place.” –Newsday

    “As timely as it is well-written . . . As the world seems to further divide
    itself into them and us, Nafisi reminds her readers of the folly of
    thinking in black and white.” Cleveland Plain Dealer

    “Readers will have a new appreciation for the worn Nabokov and James
    titles on their bookshelves after reading Nafisi’s engaging memoir.”
    –Minneapolis Star Tribune

    “Nafisi’s writing has painterly qualities. . . . She is able to capture a
    moment and describe it with ease and melancholy. . . . Reading Lolita in
    is much more than a literary memoir; it becomes a tool for
    teaching us how to construe literature in a new, more meaningful
    way.” –Library Journal

    “Brilliant . . . So much is right with this book, if not with this world.”
    –The Boston Globe

    “I was enthralled and moved by Azar Nafisi’s account of how she defied,
    and helped others to defy, radical Islam’s war against women.
    Her memoir contains important and properly complex reflections
    about the ravages of theocracy, about thoughtfulness, and about the
    ordeals of freedom–as well as a stirring account of the pleasures and
    deepening of consciousness that result from an encounter with great
    literature and with an inspired teacher.” –SUSAN SONTAG

    “A memoir about teaching Western literature in revolutionary Iran,
    with profound and fascinating insights into both. A masterpiece.”
    –BERNARD LEWIS, author of What Went Wrong?

    “Anyone who has ever belonged to a book group must read this book.
    Azar Nafisi takes us into the vivid lives of eight women who must
    meet in secret to explore the forbidden fiction of the west. It is at once
    a celebration of the power of the novel and a cry of outrage at the reality
    in which these women are trapped. The ayatollahs don’t know it,
    but Nafisi is one of the heroes of the Islamic Republic.”
    –GERALDINE BROOKS, author of Nine Parts
    of Desire
    and Year of Wonders

    “When I first saw Azar Nafisi teach, she was standing in a university
    classroom in Tehran, holding a bunch of red fake poppies in one hand
    and a bouquet of daffodils in the other, and asking, what is kitsch?
    Now, mesmerizingly, she reveals the shimmering worlds she created
    in those classrooms, inside a revolution that was an apogee of kitsch
    and cruelty. Here, people think for themselves because James and
    Fitzgerald and Nabokov sing out against authoritarianism and repression.
    You will be taken inside a culture, and on a journey, that you will
    never forget.” –JACKI LYDEN, author of Daughter of the
    Queen of Sheba
