Reading a place and a people – Kimberley’s August suggestion

The Republic of Imagination: America in Three Books by Azar Nafisi

republic imagination coverKimberly says: “Azar Nafisi makes a compelling case for the importance of reading fiction in order to enjoy and maintain a free and open society. As a new American citizen, Nafisi illustrates her interest and her engagement with key American novels. The section on Huckleberry Finn is particularly interesting as she weaves her own personal story with Huck’s journey down the Mississippi. Just like Reading Lolita in Tehran, the book is interesting and readable, even if you have not read all the texts that she references.”
