Review

'A shockingly vivid picture of prison life' (Daily Mail)

'A dramatic account that takes us to the heart of a brutal . . . dictatorship' (Morning Star)

'Her story is unforgettable' (Janine de Giovanni, Vogue)

'Mesmerizing stuff' (Glamour)

'A gripping personal history' (New York Times)

'A moving and eloquent account of her life' (Sainsbury's Magazine, June issue)

'Nemat (tells) an extraordinary story of life in revolutionary Iran, of imprisonment, forced marriage and conversion to Islam' (Sue Baker, Publishing News)

Like a harrowing Thousand and One Arabian Nights, Prisoner of Tehran is the story of Marina Nemat - her unvarnished courage, her intrepid wisdom, her fight to save her integrity and her family in a world in which to be female is to be chattel. Written with the deft hands of a novelist, it is the portrait of a world only too real, where women's lives are cheap - but not this one (Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN and CAGE OF STARS)

'Prisoner of Tehran is a harrowing journey, an account of growth under the darkest of circumstances and a trial of faith in the face of overwhelming horror. It is skillfully constructed, with a keen sense of suspense' (Robert J. Wiersema, author of BEFORE I AWAKE)

'Prisoner of Tehran is an extraordinary story of survival and how one woman finally found inner peace through the written word' (Entertainment Weekly)

Book Description

An international bestseller, Prisoner of Tehran is the astonishing, true account of one womans remarkable courage in the face of terror.
