Iranian Rappers and Persian Porn - Jamie Maslin


From back of book:

When Jamie Maslin decides to hitchhike the entire length of the Silk Road, he decides to travel first and plan later. Then, unexpectedly stranded in Iran - a country he's only read about in newspaper - he wonders whether he'll make it out alive. After crossing the border on foot from Turkey, Maslin finds himself plunged into the subversive, contradictory world of Iranian subculture, where he is embraced by locals who are happy to show hi the true Iran as they see it - where tourists are treated like royalty; where cab drivers shout abuse at Mullahs from their car windows; where unmarried men and women mingle in Western clothes at secret parties; where cans of whiskey (the possession of which is punishable by lashings) are readily available on the black market; where Christian churches are national heritage sites; and where he discovers the real meaning of friendship, nationality, and hospitality. This is the hilarious and dynamic account of one Westerner's life-altering rambles that illustrates first-hand the attitudes and aspirations of a nation in flux.
