Prisoner of Tehran: A Memoir

Price $20.00
Author: Marina Nemat

This heartbreaking but triumphant book is an account of one woman's courage in the face of terror and her quest for freedom. It tells the story of the writer’s life as a young girl in Iran during the early days of Ayatollah Khomeini's brutal Islamic Revolution.

Her peaceful childhood in Tehran was shattered when the Iranian Revolution of 1979 ushered in a new era of Islamic rule. After complaining to her teachers about lessons being replaced by Koran study, Marina was arrested late one evening. Aged sixteen, she was taken to the notorious Evin prison, where she was interrogated, tortured and sentenced to death. 

She survived only because one of the guards fell in love with her. Soon after her forced conversion to Islam and marriage, her husband was assassinated by rival factions. Marina was returned to prison but, ironically, it was her captor's family who eventually secured her release.
