A unique composite picture of what it's really like to live, work, love and blog in Iran 'This is not the first example of a book made out of blogs... It does, I think, count as the finest so far: an eye-opening collage of extracts from the (roughly) 64,000 Farsi-language bloggers now at work in Iran, threaded by Alavi's illuminating analysis.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent 'Incredibly heartening' Ian Hislop, 'Start the Week', BBC R4 'Every now and again a book comes along that first challenges any preconceived notions you may have about a particular subject, and then turns them completely on their head. We Are Iran is just such a book.' Metro 'This could very well be the nearest thing to a nation writing its own history.' Scotsman 'You won't get a better glimpse of the obsessions and frustrations that exist behind the imposed cliche of the black chador; ideas and passions that thrive despite the rule of what Alavi calls the mutant IslamistsA".' Christopher Dickey, Newsweek 'An eye-opening patchwork of Iranian voices - It would be hard to read We Are Iran without sensing you had glimpsed the affairs of ordinary people living in a cruelly restrictive regime.'
