Description:

A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran
Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal and Sarah Shourd

In conversation with Arun Rath, host of NPR’s “Weekend All Things Considered”


In 2009, three American hikers (and UC Berkeley grads) hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan unknowingly crossed into Iran and were captured by a border patrol. Accused of espionage, they were incarcerated in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison—Sarah, for fourteen months and Josh and Fattal, for two long years. This poignant memoir is their story, as told through a bold and innovative interweaving of the authors’ three voices that recounts the psychological torment of interrogation and the collective strength of will that kept them alive.
