Declared an “obscene publication” by the Iranian Ministry of Cultural and Islamic Guidance, the Persian translation of Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita was published and disseminated as an underground item, sold illegally in bazaars and ‘under the table’ in bookstores and magazine stands all over the country.

Humbert Humbert is a European intellectual adrift in America, haunted by memories of a lost adolescent love. When he meets his ideal nymphet in the shape of 12-year-old Dolores Haze, he constructs an elaborate plot to seduce her, but first he must get rid of Lolita’s mother.
