Lois on the Loose


‘Revolutionary Ride’
my book about my travels in Iran is OUT NOW in the UK, the US/Canada and Australia/NZ. It has also been translated into German.

It is available from Amazon in the UK and Amazon USA . But better still, buy a copy from your local bookshop!

Being interviewed on Voice of America Persian

Voice of America Persian

Iran continues to be a hot topic, so I’ve been talking and writing about it in all sorts of places, including the BBC World Service, BBC Radio 5Live, BBC Radio 4 and BBC 6 Music with Cerys Matthews. I even gave an interview on Voice of America Persian (and yes, I got to say something in Persian at the end!) And somehow I managed to find time to write this article for CNN, this one for The Guardian, and this one for the i-newspaper.

I’ve also had the pleasure of speaking about my experiences in Iran at a truly diverse range of events from London’s Adventure Travel Show and the Telegraph Outdoor Show to the Dubai Traveller’s Festival, The Royal Society for Asian Affairs and the Society of Skeptics in the USA. With the new book out now, I have plenty of events and talks coming up, so keep checking in and you can also stay up to date with my antics on facebook and twitter @loispryce.

As they say in Iran, Bezan Berim!
