Présentation de l'éditeur

This is real Tehran: a city that is hidden from view and rarely written about, where survival depends on an intricate network of lies and subterfuge.

It is a place where mullahs visit prostitutes, drug kingpins run crystal meth kitchens, surgeons restore girls' virginity and homemade porn is uploaded onto the Internet and sold in the bazaars.

Plotted around the city's great central thoroughfare, Vali Asr Street, CITY OF LIES chronicles the lives of eight protagonists drawn from across the spectrum of Iranian society. This is a world of gangsters, socialites, dutiful housewives and volunteer militiamen - ordinary people forced to lead extraordinary lives.

Based on extensive interviews and research, CITY OF LIES is an intimate and unforgettable portrait of modern Tehran, and of what it is to live, love and survive under one of the world's most repressive regimes.

I couldn't put this book down, I am an avid reader getting through at least 2 books per week, however if something doesn't hold my attention, I just get on to the nex book, I normally don't enjoy short stories and was unsure if I was going to purchase but am so glad I did!

Ramita is an extreamly talented writer, in each story ste actually makes you feel like you are in Iran, right there with the person, she gives a really clear picture of what it is actually like in Iran, how the people are, how they are treated, what happens.

I have read a few books about Iran however this is by far the standout.

I certainly hope there is a sequel!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly informative, fun read! 14 septembre 2014

Being old enough to remember the Pahlavi dynasty and then witness the cultural change, I was eager to compare the stories in this book with my own interactions with Iranians online over the past decade. Just like the author notes, there are official restrictions on internet use -- especially for women -- but most everyone knows ways of getting around them, even in internet cafes. It's a damn weird thing that the US government has its own policy against Iran when Iran has long been willing to work with Washington, just not accept all of Washington's bull hockey that comes with such a relationship (see Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, etc.). Iranians are surprisingly friendly and well educated, and unlike most other people in the Middle East, the first and last words they speak doesn't have to do with the Quran. Navai's accounts illustrate how far Iranians go to live on their own terms, and then put on the mask in public to please the latest religious leaders when needed, much like Americans straighten up and slow down when the cops are around. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read it second time. I gladly recommend it.

Using a variety of real characters and events the author provides us with an excellent incite into a Tehran that few of us distant observers could imagine.
Highly recommended to those who are determined to witness real life beyond the major media stories.

These are fascinating and compelling stories of life of life in Iran. If you know little if life in the Islamic Republic they may astound you. If you know more they may delight you. And they will help you understand why the author loves Iran despite the Islamic regime.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An enjoyable read - slightly exaggerated image 15 septembre 2014

Very good storytelling. Having grown up and raised in Tehran until I was 25, It was an enjoyable read for me. As it is mentioned by the author the characters of the short stories are mostly people on the fringe of the society. Although all of the stories can be true (and particularly the source of the stories have been provided by the author at the end of the book was great), my concern is that the image of the Iranian society that the book offers may be a bit exaggerated and superficial. I other word the book does not provide an image of the life of the "ordinary" Iranians of any socioeconomic class. But all that said, it was a fun read.
