CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Azadeh Moaveni, longtime Middle East correspondent for Time magazine, returns
to Iran to cover the rise of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Living and working
in Tehran, she finds a nation that openly yearns for freedom and contact with
the West but whose economic grievances and nationalist spirit find an outlet in
Ahmadinejad’s strident pronouncements. And then the unexpected happens: Azadeh
falls in love with a young Iranian man and decides to get married and start a
family in Tehran. Suddenly, she finds herself navigating an altogether
different side of Iranian life. As women are arrested for “immodest dress” and
the authorities unleash a campaign of intimidation against journalists, Azadeh
is forced to make the hard decision that her family’s future lies outside Iran.
Powerful and poignant, Honeymoon in Tehran is the harrowing story of a young
woman’s tenuous life in a country she thought she could change.
