Summary
In this powerful memoir, Talebi (religious studies, Arizona State U.) recounts her time as a political prisoner in her homeland, Iran. First a prisoner of the Shah during his last years in power, then (for a much longer time) held in the Islamic Republic's infamous Nevin Prison, the author sacrificed a decade of her life for her political activities. Talebi shares with readers how she and other prisoners withstood their own suffering and retained hope and humanity in those dark years, often with brutal honesty. While this book will clearly have great appeal for readers interested in Iran's recent history, it also has much to say to anyone concerned with the issues of government-sanctioned torture and violence in any country.
