Malika Oufkirs profound and heartbreaking memoir, Stolen Lives, a New York Times best seller, told of her familys twenty-year imprisonment in a Moroccan desert jail and their eventual breath-taking escape. It became a huge national best seller and was only the second non-fiction title ever selected for Oprahs Book Club. In her new book, Freedom, Oufkir reveals what it is like to return to the world after twenty years of darkness. Living life for the first time as an adult woman, she writes candidly on her adjustment to the modern worldfrom using an ATM and shopping in a supermarket, to understanding the concept of freedom itself in a world with so many strange restrictions; falling in love; and having an intimate relationship with a man for the first time. Moving, funny, and full of wisdom and insight, Freedom is a sequel every bit as masterful as the originaland one that Oufkirs devoted fans will embrace.

Having finally escaped after twenty years in a Moroccan desert prison, Malika Oufkir is anything but free. Edita Brychta, who read Oufkir's first audio, STOLEN LIVES, recounts this new story in a soft European-accented voice that is almost lulling. But her voice changes quickly when she punctuates Oufkir's painful anecdotes about owning her hard-won freedomâ such as her shocked confusion at the plentitude of items in a grocery store and her almost pitiful indignation when a shopper gets in her way. Brychta's voice is timid as she describes the difficulty of twenty lost years, which make Oufkir feel like a "child in an adult body." As a writer, Oufkir excels when she zooms in to relate specific incidents. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
