New: Azadeh Moaveni's Honeymoon in Tehran

Books about women in Iran are growing into a burgeoning subgenre. Fans can now add to Reading Lolita in Tehran and Persepolis the latest from Lipstick Jihad author Azadeh Moaveni, Honeymoon in Tehran. Moaveni’s glitzy titles tend to undersell the seriousness of her books: In Honeymoon in Tehran, Moaveni returns to Iran in 2005 to cover Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s election for Time magazine. As American-Iranian relations sour over Tehran’s nuclear program, Moaveni finds herself, as an American journalist, not only the subject of Iranian intimidation, but also leading a personal life that puts her at danger in the conservative Muslim country as she lives with and becomes impregnated by a boyfriend before marriage.
