Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books - Azar Nafisi This book piqued my interest in Nabakov. She strikes me as someone from whom I'd love to take a class. And although I'm glad she didn't focus on history or politics per se (and wisely leaves that to other authors), I do wish the book had a bit more substance. But it's readable and gives us insight into an era and perspective which has few voices published in English.
