This is the story of Azar Nafisi's dream and of the nightmare that made it come true. For two years before she left Iran in 1997, Nafisi gathered seven young women at her house every Thursday morning to read and discuss forbidden works of Western literature. They were all former students whom she had taught at university. They were unaccustomed to being asked to speak their minds, but soon they began to open up and to speak more freely, not only about the novels they were reading but also about themselves, their dreams and disappointments. Nafisi's account flashes back to the early days of the revolution, when she first started teaching at the University of Tehran amid the swirl or protests and demonstrations. Azar Nafisi's tale offers a fascinating portrait of the Iran-Iraq war viewed from Tehran and gives us a rare glimpse, from the inside, of women's lives in revolutionary Iran.… (més)

Die Iranische Literaturdozentin und Autorin erzählt hier eine Autobiographisch wahre Geschichte.
Eine Gruppe junger Frauen flüchtet sich vor der Menschen- und vor allem Frauenfeindlichen totalitären Islamischen Herrschaft in die Welt der Literatur. Dabei wird die Geschichte der Islamischen Revolution und ihrere ganzen Schrecklichkeit erzählt.
Sicher ein Frauenbuch, falls es sowas gibt. ( )

“Do not, under any circumstances, belittle a work of fiction by trying to turn it into a carbon copy of real life; what we search for in fiction is not so much reality but the epiphany of truth.”
― Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books

Sorry but this was a DNF for me and several members of my book club. I liked the subject matter and had been looking forward to reading it but it was all over the place and jumped around to much for my tastes. ( )

his book is a series of reminisces of Nafisi's life as a professor of literature in Iran. It is a fascinating view into the life of a woman who was unsatisfied with the life she was forced to lead there. Just as important as her life is the life of her students and their reactions to the books she had them read. Nafisi also conveys that the tragedy of the laws, at least as applied to women, is that they tried to erase individual personalities. Reading Lolita in Tehran was a good and, at times, emotionally challenging book.

The charismatic passion in the book is not simply for literature itself but for the kind of inspirational teaching of it which helps students to teach themselves by applying their own intelligence and emotions to what they are reading.

[A]n 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.
