"Rich, absorbing, and exotic, City of Lies travels up and down Vali Asr Street, Tehran's pulsing thoroughfare, from the lavish shopping malls of Tajrish through the smog that lingers over the alleyways and bazaars of the city's southern districts.

City of lies : love, sex, death, and the search for truth in Tehran by Ramita Navai( Recording )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Real Tehran: A City that is hidden from view and rarely written about, where survival depends on an intricate network of lies and subterfuge. It is a place where mullahs visit prostitutes, drug kingpins run crystal meth kitchens, surgeons restore girls' virginity and homemade porn is uploaded to the Internet and sold in the bazaars. Plotted around the city's great central thoroughfare, Vali Asr Street, City of Lies chronicles the lives of eight protagonists drawn from across the spectrum of Iranian society. This is a world of gangsters, socialites, dutiful housewives and volunteer militiamen -- ordinary people forced to lead extraordinary lives. Based on extensive interviews and research, City of Lies is an intimate and unforgettable portrait of modern Iran, and of what it is to live, love and survive under one of the world's most repressive regimes. --Book Jacket

Im "Gottesstaat" Iran spielt sich das Leben im Verborgenen ab. Schulmädchen tragen unter dem Tschador Jeans und Turnschuhe, untreue Ehemänner pilgern nicht nach Mekka, sondern nach Thailand, brave Hausfrauen drehen Pornofilme, Mullahs sagen per Handy die Zukunft voraus, und beim Schönheitschirurgen werden nicht nur Nasen gerichtet, sondern auch Jungfernhäutchen wiederhergestellt. Ramita Navai erzählt von den abenteuerlichen Doppelleben der Menschen und entwirft ein faszinierendes Porträt einer Stadt, die ihren Schleier nur ungern lüftet. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
