HerStories

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on January 30, 2009

I’ve changed my list of 4 memoirs to review, and first up we have:

Things I’ve Been Silent About

By Azar Nafisi

Published by Random House, Dec 2008

ISBN 978-1-4000-6361-1

 

Growing up in a politically unstable and war torn country like Iran, with its civil and religious unrest and cruel political regimes dating back to the Persians – is not easy. Living with a family that spends more time making up stories and lies about their lives than telling the truth of how it really was – is not easy. Learning to find your voice and your place as an intelligent Middle Eastern woman from a history of oppression and suppression – is not easy. No, Growing, Living and Learning are not easy, but perhaps hardest of all is opening up and sharing with others the story of a life that, before its birth into a book, was only notes in a diary called, ‘Things I’ve Been Silent About’

Be sure to check out the full revised review of this magnificent book on the Story Circle Network Book Review site, soon to be found at: www.storycirclebookreviews.org
