Honeymoon in Tehran
Author: Azadeh Moaveni
Publisher: Random House
Price: $30 (Hardcover)

In this memoir, journalist Azadeh Moaveni presents two very different faces of Iran. On the surface, she sees the fundamentalism in the stern ascension of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which is what brought her to Iran in the first place. But through her reporting, she meets a host of characters representing a progressive Iran, that express views against the country’s oft-stereotyped class divisions.
