The Translation of Lolita into Persian and

No to Hegemony of the Censorship


One of the strongest-willed translators active today. Confronting pernicious state-sponsored censorship, watching as dubious publishers eight time zones away put her work into print without permission or payment.

- Peter O’brien, The Globe and Mail


Her translations are distributed as pirated or over the Internet without her earning a cent – but that does not bother Akram Pedramnia. She is even pleased. Thanks to her, Iranian readers can read Lolita or Tender Is the Night

- Angela Schader, Neue Zürcher Zeitung
