Reading About Reading Lolita

If you love literature and want to learn about our kinship with other women, I recommend that you pick up a copy of Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi.

A lovely, heart- wrenching "story" about women joined together by their love of books, and their personal search to find themselves in an era where "self" is dismissed.

Sharing stories of the political, woven with characters from Henry James, Vladimir Nabokov, (my favourite) Jane Austen and others, you are sure to feel connected to the plight these women endured and give thanks for our freedom.

Please feel free to drop a comment about your favourite character, the scene that touched you, or which book that was mentioned that you will add to your list!
