A Sliver of Light

Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran


Three young Americans captured by Iranian forces and held incaptivity for two years tell their story.

In summer 2009 Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal, and Sarah Shourdwere hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan when they unknowingly crossed into Iran and werecaptured by a border patrol. Accused of espionage, the three Americans ultimatelyfound themselves in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison, where they discovered thatpooling their strength of will and relying on each other were the only waysthey could survive.

In this poignant memoir, “the hikers” finally tell theirside of the story. They recount the deception that lured them into Iran in thefirst place and describe the psychological torment of interrogation andsolitary confinement. We follow them as they make surprising alliances withtheir fellow prisoners and even some of their captors, while their own bondswith each other are tested and deepened. Told through a bold and innovativeinterweaving of the authors’ three voices, here is a rare glimpse inside Iranand a timeless portrayal of hardship and hope.
