9780099487128: Things I've Been Silent About: Memories of a Prodigal Daughter

In Azar Nafisi's personal story of growing up in Iran, she shares her memories of a life lived in thrall to a powerful and complex mother, against the background of a country's political revolution.

Nafisi's intelligent and complicated mother, disappointed in her dreams of leading an important and romantic life, created mesmerising fictions about herself, her family, and her past. But her daughter soon learned that these narratives of triumph hid as much as they revealed. When her father began to see other women, young Azar began to keep his secrets from her mother. Nafisi's complicity in these childhood dramas ultimately led her to resist remaining silent about other personal - as well as political, cultural, and social - injustices.

Things I've Been Silent About is also a powerful historical picture of a family that spans the many periods of change leading up to the Islamic Revolution of 1978-79. This unforgettable portrait of a woman, a family, and a troubled homeland is a new triumph from a modern master of the memoir.

Book Description:

" Things I've Been Silent About transports us to a world that is at once enchanting and threatening; it is a tale that mixes family feuds, politics and literature and holds our interest from the first to the last page" ( Financial Times)

"A beautiful and sensitive book... [Nafisi's] belief in the power of culture to transform lives and societies is inspiring" ( The Times)

"A companion memoir to the bestselling Reading Lolita in Tehran, this is Azar Nafisi's more personal account of growing up in Iran...an intriguing memoir" ( Metro)

"Nafisi's account is rarely shrill or self pitying, preferring to let her stories tell themselves" (Aamer Hussein The Independent)

"This powerful memoir, from the author of the global hit Reading Lolita in Tehran, is a bewitching story ... Set against the background of change before the Islamic Revolution, it is a complex, provocative story of family life, lies and loves" ( Good Housekeeping)

Book Description:

A dazzling new memoir from the author of the international bestseller Reading Lolita in Tehran
