Things I’ve Been Silent About
Author: Azar Nafisi
Publisher: Random House
Price: $32 (Hardcover)
When Azar Nafisi was a girl growing up in Iran, she concealed her father’s infidelity from her mother. Refusing to be placed in such a position again, Nafisi vowed to always speak her mind on all issues from family and faith to politics and society.
The new memoir from the author of Reading Lolita in Tehran sees Nafisi open up about her experiences growing up in Iran and how her parents’ political involvement and the 1978-79 Islamic Revolution she observed shaped who she is today.
Nafisi is personal and forthright in this studied account of growth.
