Australia. Wild Dingo Press. 2012. Stock ID #159949
370 pages, glossary, paperback, light foxing first leaves and upper edge, a good copy. In a damp, soundless basement in the slums of Iran, crouching in the dark, a young boy frantically carves a Star of David onto the rough brick wall with a rusted nail clutched tightly in his trembling hand. With a palm to his heart, he takes an oath on the sacred symbol, while above him the first horrifying cries of the Islamic Revolution shake the streets.
Kooshyar Karimi is a father, a doctor, a writer, and translator. In 1998, he is kidnapped from the streets, blindfolded, and tortured. When he is eventually released, it is only as a spy for the Islamic Secret Service. This is the story of his survival. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 159949).
