What is Azar Nafisi reading?

The voyeurist in me wants to know, and The Daily Beast complies. I'm happy to see she's reading Samantha Power's book (Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World) - I heard Samantha speak last year in Ottawa, and it was amazing. Sergio's story is also incredible and deserves attention. I'm also a big fan of Lahiri, although her first book of short stories plunged me into a bit of a mini-depression (they were all about lost connections, misunderstandings, gulfs between cultures...).

Thanks to Pilar from my library's book club, who got me hooked on the Beast recently.
