There is perhaps no one more qualified to speak about the transformative power of literature than Azar Nafisi, whose million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, told the story of a teacher’s mission to share the literary classics with students in revolutionary Iran. Her follow-up book, The Republic of Imagination, is a meditation on the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society.
