Moavani is a wonderful writer. I'm especially interested in Iran as a subject, since my father emigrated from there in the 1960s. But even for someone with no ties to Iran, this is a fascinating read. It covers the two years she lived in Iran in the mid-2000s, meeting her future husband and having a baby. This was the time that Ahmejinidad became president, and she writes of the ensuing effects and crackdowns on the culture. Iran is such an interesting country, so unlike any other in the Middle East, although it is often incorrectly lumped in with negative associations of the others. I recommend this to anyone who wants a page-turning memoir and wants to learn a bit about an important place at the same time.
