My Prison, My Home : In December 2006, Iranian-American academic Haleh Esfandiari was due to return home to the United States after visiting her ailing mother in Iran. On her way to the airport she was robbed at knifepoint by three men. Her baggage, her U.S. and Iranian passports and her identification cards were stolen. Haleh soon realized that what seemed like a straightforward robbery was, in fact, a state-coordinated plot to detain her indefinitely in Iran - a plot that would ultimately see her thrown into solitary confinement for more than three grueling months. Beautifully written and deeply felt, this is a timely and moving memoir of one woman's triumph over interrogation, intimidation and fear in a country on the brink of crisis.
