Marina Nemat grew up in Tehran, Iran. In 1991, she emigrated to Toronto, Ontario, where she now lives with her husband, Andre, and their two sons.
"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
"An Important Eyewitness Account..."
-- Kirkus Review
"Nemat's engaging memoir is rich with complex characters...[she] offers her arresting, heartbreaking story of forgiveness, hope and enduring love -- a voice for the untold scores silenced by Iran's revolution."
