i started Reading Lolita in Tehran today, and i think it's going to be lovely and interesting. its subject matter is two things that i'm very interested in, namely, books and the state of women in Iran, so. the problem is that she doesn't put quotes around her dialouge. quotes from books have quotations remarks around them; dialouge does not. i suppose this is because this is because she is emphasizing the fact that this is all in her memory, or something. all it really does is cut down on the readibility.
