READING LOLITA IN TEHRAN is a literary and audio masterpiece. The book is Azar Nafisi’s brilliant, evocative, chilling, and highly literary memoir of life as a woman in Iran under the current repressive government. Although Nafisi focuses on the secret meetings at her home with several female former students, during which they read and discuss banned works of Western literature, the book is also a portrait of a life of fear and optimism at a time when hope is elusive. Lisette Lecat’s reading is magnificent. She reads with an elegance and authenticity that permit listeners to feel as though they are also in Nafisi’s home. In addition, Lecat handles with ease and authority the passages in which Nafisi explains the intricacies of many works of literature. Nafisi’s memoir is destined to become a classic. D.J.S.
