Quick Overview

Searing in honesty, soaring in humanity, this book is an unflinching indictment of the paranoid regime in Iran; an inspiring tale of resilience and resistance by defenders of democracy and human dignity, and a love song shared by two of Iran’s most acclaimed journalists. It is an engrossing tale that sheds light not just on life in prison but on how constrains and cruelties in prison reflect the brutal realities of life in Iran today. An inspiring and informative narrative indispensable for understanding the complexities of contemporary Iran.
