Product Description

Every Thursday morning for two years in the Islamic Republic of Iran, a bold and inspired teacher named Azar Nafisi secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. As Islamic morality squads staged arbitrary raids in Tehran, fundamentalists seized hold of the universities, and a blind censor stifled artistic expression, the girls in Nafisi's living room risked removing their veils & immersed themselves in the worlds of Jane Austen, F.Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, and Vladimir Nabokov. In this extraordinary and courageous memoir, their stories intertwine with the ones they are reading, their resilience luminous in the face of tyranny.
