  • Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her multimillion-copy bestseller READING LOLITA IN TEHRAN, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught THE GREAT GATSBY and other classics of English and American literature to her eager students in Iran. In this electrifying follow-up, she argues that fiction is just as threatened --and just as invaluable --in America today.
