The Republic of Imagination free pdf A passionate hymn to the power of fiction to change people's lives, by the #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of "Reading Lolita in Tehran" Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, "Reading Lolita in Tehran," which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught "The Great Gatsby" and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating followup, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What" Reading Lolita in Tehran" was for Iran, "The Republic of Imagination "is for America. Taking her cue from a challenge thrown to her in Seattle, where a skeptical reader told her that Americans don't care about books the way they did back in Iran, she energetically responds to those who say fiction has nothing to teach us. Blending memoir and polemic with close readings of her favorite American novels--"The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Babbitt, "and "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, "among others--she invites us to join her as citizens of her "Republic of Imagination," a country where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy and the only passport to entry is a free mind and a willingness to dream.
