Summary
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
