Nasrin spent eight years in Iran’s prison system. She was systematically tortured, threatened with execution, starved and forced to live in appalling, horribly overcrowded conditions. Her memoir is both an account of what happened to her during those eight years, and evidence that her spirit was never broken.

Authors Biography

Nasrin became a civil rights activist when the Islamic regime took power in Iran. After her release, Nasrin resumed her activities and again she found herself being followed by Islamic guards. She realised she could no longer stay in Iran and fled to England, where she claimed asylum in 1993.
