Steph asked Azar Nafisi:

After reading Reading Lolita in Tehran I regretted not starting with the Suggested Reading list of books so I could better understand the textual references and the character's feelings and passion towards these works. Do you have Suggested Reading list for The Republic of Imagination?

Azar Nafisi Well, the suggested list could start from the books I mention and talk about in Republic of Imagination, like Huck Finn, Babbitt, Heart is A Lonely Hunter, and novels of James Baldwin.....I hope you will enjoy them....
