“My Prison, My Home” in Vogue!

Haleh Esfandiari has received close media attention for My Prison, My Home, including today’s article and Q&A in Vogue magazine.

Megan O’Grady writes,

Esfandiari’s keenly written account of her experience, My Prison, My Home: One Woman’s Story of Captivity in Iran (Ecco) is both an affecting study of personal dignity—under constant threat of a show trial, Esfandiari had no way of knowing if she would ever be released—and a window onto President Ahmadinejad’s distorted world view.

My Prison, My HomeThe Woodrow Wilson Center held a launch on September 14 for Esfandiari’s new book, an amazing account of one woman’s detainment and interrogation in an Iranian prison for months on end:

In 2007, Middle East Program Director Haleh Esfandiari was detained in Iran for eight months, undergoing lengthy government interrogations and spending 105 days in solitary confinement at Evin Prison, erroneously accused of trying to foment a velvet revolution. Her new book, My Prison, My Home, chronicles her interrogation and incarceration, set against the backdrop of fond memories of her Iranian upbringing, with insights into the current troubled political climate.
