We Are Iran

by Edited by Nasrin Alavi - £9.99  Portobello Books Ltd (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846270031 | ISBN 10: 1846270030

"This is not the first example of a book made out of blogs... It does, I think, count as the finest so far: an eye-opening collage of extracts from the (roughly) 64,000 Farsi-lanaguage bloggers now at work in Iran.
Alavi's theme-by-theme compilation, with the background filled in by commentary, adds up to a vibrant portrait of a dynamic but thwarted nation - two thirds of Iranians are under 30.
Bloggers may not yet rank as typical citizens, in Iran or anywhere else. Nonetheless, their energy, mischief and sheer courage - with jail a real risk - allow us to 'eavesdrop on the clandestine conversations of a closed society'."
(Boyd Tonkin, Independent)
