Azadeh Moaveni was an American reporter in Tehran in 2005 covering the rise of Ahmadinejad when the unexpected happened-she met her soul mate, fell in love, and became pregnant. Facing an uncertain future and hiding her pregnancy from the religious authorities until she could marry, Moaveni was spied upon; her phone, tapped. Shortly after giving birth, she learned that she would soon be arrested and sent to the notorious Evin prison. This is a powerful, poignant, often funny, but ultimately harrowing, story about a young woman facing her future in a very dangerous place.

Azadeh Moaveni is a clever and likeable person, definitely the sort of woman you might want to be friends with. She writes in a personal context as a female journalist and, through this perspective, the reader acquires a very clear idea of the inner workings of a fundamentalist religious dictatorship, it's political and social repercussions for women, Iran and the world. As an expatriate she longed to get back to her Iranian roots. She shares this longing with the reader by mixing her experiences and adventures with elements of ancient and modern Iranian history, religion and culture. The book is probably most appealing to thoughtful women because there is some romance but male journalists or students of political science/international relations could benefit as well. I would definitely pick up her other books after reading this one.
