Publisher's Summary

In the early days of the fundamentalist revolution in Iran, a 17-year-old girl is arrested because of her brother's involvement with leftist politics. She is placed in a makeshift jail, a former bathhouse, in which other women are also being held captive.

With intense emotion and great literary skill, Moshiri gives voice to these prisoners, exploring their torment and struggle, but also their courage and humanity, in the face of tyrants. Based on interviews with real women who have been imprisoned, Farnoosh Moshiri's novel is a gripping and moving narrative of oppression, injustice, and the human spirit.

What the Critics Say

"There is a great sense of humanity and caring in the face of unreasonable treatment and abuse¿.the insight of the book is universal." (KLIATT)
"[P]acking the punch of All Quiet on the Western Front, this is both a resolutely nonpartisan antirevolutionary brief and a gripping, harrowing story of personal courage and endurance." (Booklist)
"[T]he starkly simple tale she tells is convincing in tone and substance...the narrator is a vivid character....Moshiri's impressive novel works at two levels, telling a compelling story while bearing witness to a brutal period in Iranian history." (Publishers Weekly)
