In her new book, City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death, and the Search for Truth in Tehran, author and journalist Ramita Navai takes readers on a journey into Iran. The book dives deep into the streets of Tehran to tell the extraordinary stories of the people who live there: a porn star, a socialite, an assassin, a religious, transgender former soldier, and a woman divorcing her husband.

The lives of the people Navai met while working as an undercover journalist in Tehran are stunning and full of passion. City of Lies is an exploration of the falsehoods necessary to survive in Tehran.
