Iranian – American journalist’s book released last month

May 7, 2010

Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran’ is an account of Iranian – American journalist Roxana Saberi’s four month imprisonment in Iran’s Evin Prison and how an innocent is entangled in the political world tensions.

She was sent to jail after being accused of espionage and spying for the United States. “For several days, Saberi was held in solitary confinement, ruthlessly interrogated, and cut off from the outside world.” She was eventually released May 2009 after being suspended from her eight – year sentence.  

While she was haunted by the images of Iranian jail, the book has been therapeutic but difficult for her to complete.

Now in United States, Saberi is now planning a national book tour.

According to Shirin Ebadi, winner of Nobel Peace Prize, “Between Two Worlds is an extraordinary story of how an innocent young woman got caught up in the current of political events and met individuals whose stories vividly depict human rights violations in Iran.” (http://www.harpercollins.com/books/9780061987656/Between_Two_Worlds/index.aspx)
