Mirrors Of The Unseen - Jason Elliot

Eliot is a gentle traveller with distinct interests and biases. His view of Iran is dominated by friends, encounters and monuments. He is interested in art and religion but not in politics. His perennial struggles to avoid being ripped off by taxi drivers and museum staff lighten the mood and the frustrations of life under theocratic rule are well drawn with a light touch. The obsessive attention to architecture can be tedious to those uninterested in the topic!
