Four years on I am rereading "Reading Lolita in Tehran" to try and get some sort of fix on Iran.

It is, in light of the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, almost unbearably poignant.

You could also try watching 'Persopolis'.

My advice for today is not to be a woman in Persia.

I plan to watch Persepolis, just as soon as I have finished the book.
If you would lend me "reading Lolita" I would be delighted.
let me know, & I'll send you the postage?

Unfortunately I just lent my copy to Jane so there is a queue I am afraid. I will expedite.
