This weekend, I finished reading Reading Lolita in Tehran. This book was beautiful, poignant, and fascinating. Azar Nafisi was a professor of English literature in Tehran, eventually leaving the universities to teach a private class to a group of women students. This book combines literary analysis with a personal history of Iran through and since the revolution from the perspective of intellectual Iranian women. I strongly recommend this book.
