Descripción Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2008. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Resonant and deeply affecting . . . an eloquent brief on the transformative powers of fictionon 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 Tehran 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 Tehran 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 freedomas 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. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0812979303

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reissue. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Every Thursday morning for two years in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Azar Nafisi, a bold and inspired teacher, secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. Some came from conservative and religious families, others were progressive and secular; some had spent time in jail. They were shy and uncomfortable at first, unaccustomed to being asked to speak their minds, but soon they removed their veils and began to speak more freely their stories intertwining with the novels they were reading by Jane Austen, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, and Vladimir Nabokov. As Islamic morality squads staged arbitrary raids in Tehran, as fundamentalists seized hold of the universities and a blind censor stifled artistic expression, the women in Nafisi s living room spoke not only of the books they were reading but also about themselves, their dreams and disappointments. Azar Nafisi s luminous masterwork gives us a rare glimpse, from the inside, of women s lives in revolutionary Iran. Reading Lolita in Tehran is a work of great passion and poetic beauty, a remarkable exploration of resilience in the face of tyranny, and a celebration of the liberating power of literature.
