My Friday Finds!


  • Lipstick Jihad, by Azadeh Moaveni, about moving between the Iranian and American cultures as a woman
  • The Power Broker, by Robert A. Caro, a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Robert Moses, controversial creator of New York City parks, bridges, and highways
  • Censoring an Iranian Love Story, by Shahriar Mandanipour, a novel that is both a love story as it’s being written and censored, and an author’s struggle to tell the story he wants to tell

    These look very intense, but really beautiful. Thanks for visiting The Crowded Leaf.

    I think Lipstick Jihad and Censoring an Iranian Love Story sound wonderful. Great picks!

    Love the book cover for Censoring an Iranian Love story – very clever!

    All three are good finds to me.
