Camelia : A Memoir

An extraordinarily vivid look inside post-revolutionary Iran, Camelia is the memoir of Iranian journalist Camelia Entekhabifard, who was sent to prison because of her provocative reporting for reformist newspapers. Her gorgeous account of growing up amid the turmoil of the revolution and the Iran/Iraq War is followed by her stark narration of her arrest and imprisonment. Faced with threats of execution, she realizes that the cruel man who interrogates her daily could actually become her savior. Then unfolds Camelia’s harrowing account of their ensuing relationship, and ultimately of the steep price she paid to obtain the personal and professional independence that had always been her goal.
