The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay: An American Family in Iran

by Hooman Majd - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241956106 | ISBN 10: 0241956102

In The Ministry of Guidance Invites You to Not Stay, Hooman Majd introduces us to the delights and challenges of life in the so-called axis of evil.
 
His funny, wry account of daily life in Iran is a mixture of extreme driving, intense sociability, yellow-tinged sheep's yoghurt and truly good Cuban cigars, interspersed with challenges from the religious police, stealthy internet use and polite yet concerning interrogations inside government ministries. At parties he both hears stories from friends of life in Evin prison after the Green Revolution and witnesses heady Western-style nihilism.
 
From the smoggy streets of Tehran to the beautiful cities and mountains around it, this is a warm and revealing account of life in reverse-exile.
