Book Description Hs Media, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: Persian-Farsi . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Houshang Asadi s Letters to My Torturer is one of the most harrowing accounts of human suffering to emerge from Iran and is now available for the first time in paperback. Kept in solitary confinement for over two years in one of the most infamous prisons in Tehran, prominent Iranian journalist, Houshang Asadi suffered inhuman degradations and brutal, mindless torture at the hands of a man who introduced himself as Brother Hamid . A man without whose permission he couldn t eat, sleep, receive medical care, or go to the toilet. A man who knew no limits when it came to extracting confessions suspended from the ceiling, beaten, and forced to bark like a dog, Asadi became a spy for the Russians, for the British - for anyone. Narrowly escaping execution as the government unleashed a bloody pogrom against political prisoners that left thousands dead, he was hauled before a sham court and sentenced to fifteen years. In exile, tormented by nightmares and flashbacks, Asadi first attempt at recording his experiences resulted in a heart attack. Here at last he confronts his torturer one last time, speaking for those whose voices will never be heard, and provides a chilling glimpse into the heart of Iran and the practice of state-sponsored justice. In 1983, the journalist, writer, and translator Houshang Asadi was locked in a Tehran prison. Under torture, he said he was a spy. Many of his friends also confessed and were later executed. He was released after six years. Today he lives in Paris with his wife, Nooshabeh Amiri. They write for the high-profile Iranian news website Rooz Online. Remarkable on any terms, but it is made especially memorable by the chilling irony and heartbreaking naivete that characterize Mr. Asadi s tale. Wall Street Journal With moving stories about fellow prisoners, biting commentary on the religious dictates imposed by his jailers, and meditations on the soul-destroying effect of false confessions and the special cruelty of his ideological, authoritarian interrogators, Asadi s simple prose attracts even as the facts he reports repel. A horrifying glimpse of the decades-long nightmare still afflicting the people of Iran. Kirkus. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781780832876
