Roxana Saberi's Memoir of Captivity in Iran

Roxana Saberi's Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran chronicles her experiences as a prisoner in Iran's Evin Prison.

For me, it's very hard to imagine what she went through.  She was imprisoned for over a hundred days, and during that time she was often told that they would keep her locked up for ten years.   Roxana's Interview on the Tavis Smiley Show gives an idea of just how difficult it must have been, and yet it also shows the poise and reflection of someone who is braver than she herself would ever admit.

For more information, see Roxana's Interview with Paul Morton of The Millions.
