Tehran, Lipstick and Loopholes

by Nahal Tajadod
£8.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Virago Press) (2011)

Tehran, Lipstick and Loopholes by Nahal Tajadod A wry and humorous account of the author's quest to get her Iranian passport renewed.
 
She embarks on a bizarre and circuitous journey, meeting a colourful cast of characters along the way: two photographers who specialise in Islamic portraits, a forensic surgeon who trades in human organs, a madam who wants to send prostitutes to Dubai and a grandmother who offers a live chicken to an implacable official.
 
Tehran, Lipstick and Loopholes is a fascinating look at the constraints and contradictions of contemporary life in Tehran from the author's unique standpoint of being both a native of Iran and a foreigner.
