Publisher's Summary

I Am Yours is the story of Reema Zaman's unwavering fight to protect and free her voice from those who have sought to silence her. From Bangladesh to Thailand to New York to Oregon, through gorgeous prose as beautiful as it is biting, poetic as it is political, and healing as it is haunting, Zaman explores the many difficulties, dangers, and, ultimately, the necessity for all women, all people, to own and use their voices.

With astonishing courage and intimacy, Zaman offers up a memoir to alleviate the loneliness that often arises from being human in this world. I Am Yours is an iconic debut that promises to shake global literature.

Stunning and moving - a must-read!

Gorgeously written, and so purely moving.

The beginning was a little hard for me to get into (as it's written from a child's perspective) but it's essential to the story and message and ended up being worthwhile. I could relate to events throughout much of this book and it allowed me to have greater compassion for myself when I look back at my life because I felt so much compassion - never pity - for the narrator. And not only that, but dazzled admiration for the grit, fierceness, and strength it takes to go through life with such clarity and grace.

The ending - what can I say to do it justice? My heart was swelling and my tears were brimming. She said many things that I've told others in the past, but which I could never quite believe applied to myself, and I can say without hyperbole that it's life-changing for me to hear them being said to me (I listened to the audiobook).

This book takes the place of endurance story, psychology book, philosophy and spirituality tales, and self-help for me. I want to get the physical book and go over it with a highlighter! I will definitely listen to this again.

Ms. Zaman has a massively powerful story and message, and she weaves it artfully. This is going to be a classic. Get it; you won't regret it.

Stunning. A tough listen, but worth every second!

This is just a placeholder review until I gather my thoughts. One of the most compelling audiobooks I've ever listened to. I can't imagine reading the text when the author's voice is so compelling. It's a stunning book.

This book was recommended by a friend and I loved it. The writer, also narrator, brought the book to life. It a beautifully written, powerfully honest, and ultimately hopeful.
