In Iran, a seventeen-year-old girl is arrested because of her brother's politics and imprisoned in a former bathhouse with other women captives. With intense emotion and great literary skill, Moshiri gives voice to these prisoners, exploring their torment and struggle, their courage and humanity, in the face of tyrants.
"[T]he starkly simple tale she tells is convincing in tone and substance....the narrator is a vivid character, an ordinary student with a stubborn, rebellious streak that enables her to endure the horrors of prison. Moshiri's impressive novel works at two levels, telling a compelling story while bearing witness to a brutal period in Iranian history."-Publishers Weekly
