Reading Lolita in Tehran Lesson Plan

Relationship to Other Books

Consider other books written by Iranian authors like Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, Equal of the Sun by Anita Amirrezvani, and Tremors: New Fiction by Iranian American Writers edited by Anita Amirrezvani.

Consider Azar Nafisi’s other works Things I’ve been Silent About and The Republic of Imagination.

It might be interesting to match Reading Lolita in Tehran with some of the books Nafisi mentions, including Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Daisy Miller by Henry James, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
