Iran:Prisoner of Tehran

ZaneIrani writes about a new book:Prisoner of Tehran.The blogger talks about the story:”Marina Nemat was arrested on January 15, 1982, at about nine o'clock at night. She was sixteen. A prison guard named Ali had fallen in love with Nemat and used his father's connection to the Ayatollah to commute her sentence to life in prison. Threatening to harm her family and friends, he forced Nemat — a Christian — to marry him and convert to Islam.”
