Una sconvolgente storia di abusi e diritti negati.L’odissea drammaticamente vera di una donna innocenteLa mattina del 31 gennaio 2009 quattro uomini fanno irruzione in casa di Roxana Saberi, brillante e coraggiosa giornalista americana di origini iraniane. La donna, in Iran per una serie di reportage e la stesura di un libro, viene arrestata con l’accusa di spionaggio. Per diversi giorni Roxana non può ricevere visite né fare telefonate ed è completamente tagliata fuori dal mondo. Dopo un processo lampo a porte chiuse, definito “vergognoso” dai giornali di tutto il mondo, la reporter viene condannata a otto anni di reclusione, da scontare nel carcere di massima sicurezza di Evin, a Teheran. Solo nel maggio 2009, in seguito alle numerose pressioni internazionali, in primo luogo di Amnesty International e di Human Rights Watch, la pena viene sospesa in appello. Oggi Roxana Saberi rompe il silenzio per descrivere al mondo la sua odissea e ripercorre con lucidità e coraggio i momenti dell’arresto, della prigionia, del processo e del rilascio, intrecciando i suoi ricordi alle storie dei prigionieri con i quali ha diviso quei terribili giorni: donne, studenti, attivisti, ricercatori e accademici perseguitati dal regime iraniano.«Il commovente ed efficace ritratto di una giovane donna innocente risucchiata nel vortice degli eventi politici, e una vivida testimonianza delle pesanti violazioni dei diritti umani in Iran.»Shirin Ebadi, premio Nobel per la Pace«Una storia agghiacciante, ricca di particolari accuratamente descritti e pervasa da un eroico candore; l’indimenticabile cronaca di una delle fin troppo frequenti negazioni dei diritti umani universali, della giustizia e della verità.»Booklist«Un intenso e coraggioso memoir che è anche un atto d’accusa contro la ciarlataneria e la mania di grandezza del governo iraniano e del suo entourage.»San Francisco Chronicle«Roxana Saberi riesce a trasmettere il terrore, lo smarrimento e la perdita di certezze che prova chi è vittima innocente di un sistema repressivo in cui i diritti umani non vengono tutelati.»Elise Auerbach, Amnesty InternationalRoxana Saberi32 anni, è una giornalista irano-americana nata in New Jersey e cresciuta in North Dakota.

Yasmeena was an innocent abroad. She was a college educated, English-speaking flight attendant graced with an unusual amount of confidence and sophistication. She was also a virgin and a conservative Muslim daughter and sister. When Yasmeena's flight out of Kuwait was delayed, it was because Saddam Hussein had just invaded Kuwait. Iraqi soldiers threw her into a woman's prison where the guards committed ghastly sexual attacks and tortured the women in excruciating ways.

With this book Fallaci breaks a ten year silence--the silence she kept until September 11's apocalypse in her Manhattan house. She breaks it with a deafening noise. In Europe this book has caused a turmoil--polemics, discussion, debates, hearty praises, wild attacks. Fallaci faces the themes unchained by the Islamic terrorism: the contrast and, in her opinion, incompatibility between the Islamic world and the Western world; the global reality of the Jihad and the lack of response, the lenience of the West. She defends our culture and blames what she calls our blindness, our deafness, our masochism, the conformism and the arrogance of the Politically Correct.--From publisher description.

The Angel Tree by Lucinda Riley is a compelling mystery of family secrets and forgotten pasts from the author of The Seven Sisters. Thirty years have passed since Greta left Marchmont Hall, a grand and beautiful house nestled in the hills of rural Monmouthshire. But when she returns to the Hall for Christmas, at the invitation of her old friend David Marchmont, she has no recollection of her past association with it - the result of a tragic accident that has blanked out more than two decades of her life. Then, during a walk through the wintry landscape, she stumbles across a grave in the woods, and the weathered inscription on the headstone tells her that a little boy is buried here . . . The poignant discovery strikes a chord in Greta's mind and soon ignites a quest to rediscover her lost memories. With David's help, she begins to piece together the fragments of not only her own story, but that of her daughter, Cheska, who was the tragic victim of circumstances beyond her control. And, most definitely, not the angel she appeared to be . . . *First published as Not Quite an Angel under the name Lucinda Edmonds, now extensively rewritten*
