"An Iranian author sets out to write an uplifting love story set in a world where men and women aren't even allowed to see each other face to face in a public library. The story is told in bold, while in regular font he writes his own commentary along with all the things that are part of the story but that he knows will never make it past the censors. The book is partly about Iran, partly about censorship, and partly about being a writer. It's thought-provoking and engaging, and I'm loving it."
