...I think you have to actually read Lolita before you read this book. It compares intricate, detailed parts of Lolita to the author's experiences in Tehran and its overbearing government. The anecdotes and writing style are wonderful, but I honestly get lost in the pages and pages of literary allusiuons. It's almost English essay-ish in these bits. I'll try to read it again after reading Lolita.
