Rich, absorbing, and exotic—City of Lies travels up and down Vali Asr Street, Tehran’s pulsing thoroughfare, from the lavish shopping malls of Tajrish through the smog that lingers over the alleyways and bazaars of the city’s southern districts.
Ramita Navai gives voice to ordinary Iranians forced to live extraordinary lives: the porn star, the aging socialite, the assassin and enemy of the state who ends up working for the Republic, the dutiful housewife who files for divorce, and the old-time thug running a gambling den.
In today’s Tehran, intrigues abound and survival depends on an intricate network of falsehoods: mullahs visit prostitutes, local mosques train barely pubescent boys in crowd control tactics, and cosmetic surgeons promise to restore girls’ virginity. Navai paints an intimate portrait of those discreet recesses in a city where the difference between modesty and profanity, loyalty and betrayal, honor and disgrace is often no more than the believability of a lie.Ramita Navai Daily Show Interview (Comedy Central)http://youtu.be/mao7Z6tkjfgRamita Navai Underground Interview (Russian TV)http://youtu.be/L1Gx6u62pO8Ramita Navai Wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramita_NavaiRamita Navai Sitehttp://www.ramitanavai.com/Ramita Navai Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Ramita-N ... 2202075633City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death and the Search for Truth in TehranPurchase the book HerePurchase the Book Click Here:Purchase the Book Click Here:
