A wry and humorous account of the author's quest to get her Iranian passport renewed.
She embarks on a bizarre and circuitous journey, meeting a colourful cast of characters
along the way: two photographers who specialise in Islamic portraits, a forensic surgeon
who trades in human organs, a madam who wants to send prostitutes to Dubai and a
grandmother who offers a live chicken to an implacable official.

TEHRAN, LIPSTICK AND LOOPHOLES is a fascinating look at the constraints and contradictions
of contemporary life in Tehran from the author's unique standpoint of being both a native of Iran and a foreigner.
