Recommended reading: Iranian Rappers and Persian Porn, A Hitchhiker's Adventures in the New Iran. Jamie Maslin is a young Brit who writes a casual journal-style account of his daily (surreal) experiences in Iran, which are mostly positive - he was an admired novelty wherever he went. Perfect for the arm chair traveler who is curious about life in one of the "axis of evil" countries. It left me wanting a female visitor's version, which would have come out quite differently.
