Ela publicou uma autobiografia "Things I've been silent about: memories of a prodigal daughter" , que trata do impacto por toda a vida da relação com os pais e das década de sublevação política no Irã, incluindo a prisão do pai sob o Xá e as falsas alegações de irregularidades financeiras.

Citações Azar Nafisi

„If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel.“

— Azar Nafisi
Context: A novel is not an allegory... It is the sensual experience of another world. If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel. This is how you read a novel: you inhale the experience. So start breathing.

„The best fiction always forced us to question what we took for granted. It questioned traditions and expectations when they seemed too immutable.“

— Azar Nafisi
Context: I explained that most great works of the imagination were meant to make you feel like a stranger in your own home. The best fiction always forced us to question what we took for granted. It questioned traditions and expectations when they seemed too immutable. I told my students I wanted them in their readings to consider in what ways these works unsettled them, made them a little uneasy, made them look around and consider the world, like Alice in Wonderland, through different eyes.

„Every great work of art ... is a celebration, an act of insubordination against the betrayals, horrors and infidelities of life.“

— Azar Nafisi
Context: Every great work of art... is a celebration, an act of insubordination against the betrayals, horrors and infidelities of life.

„Memories have ways of becoming independent of the reality they evoke. They can soften us against those we were deeply hurt by or they can make us resent those we once accepted and loved unconditionally.“

— Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran
Context: As I trace the route to his apartment, the twists and turns, and pass once more the old tree opposite his house, I am struck by a sudden thought: memories have ways of becoming independent of the reality they evoke. They can soften us against those we were deeply hurt by or they can make us resent those we once accepted and loved unconditionally.
