My Life as a Traitor: A Story of Courage and Survival in Tehran's Brutal Evin Prison
Out of stock. Delivery time unknown.
DescriptionIt was part youthful zeal and part teen crush that led Zarah Ghahramani to join a student protest movement. But dabbling in student politics was to lead to disaster when one day she was bundled into a car and taken to Tehran's most notorious prison: Evin. Far from her comfortable middle-class home, Zarah had to find refuge from her ruthless interrogators in a windowless concrete cell. Day after day she was humiliated and viciously beaten until all she wanted was simply to die, her spirit broken. In "My Life as a Traitor", Zarah tells the story of her horrifying ordeal and her eventual release, and describes the ways it changed the naive nineteen-year-old she once was into a woman of courage and determination.
