The book, based on Shahla Talebi’s experience of imprisonment and exile, is divided into six chapters that document the memories of the author and her fellow inmates.

Shahla Talebi was imprisoned in Iran from 1977 to 1978 and again from 1983 to 1992, first by the former Shah and later by the Islamic Republic, for her political beliefs and activities. She now lives in the United States and is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Arizona State University. This is a powerful book that significantly enriches readers' understanding of human resiliency under regimes of torture and stands as compassionate testimony to the dialectical relationship between repression and resistance in modern Iran.

Talebi’s book is a memoir of her imprisonment twice, from 1977-78 during the Pahlavi monarchy and 1983-1992 under the Islamic Republic.

Shahla Talebi, Talebi Shahla. Opening the enormous metal gate, the guard suddenly took away my blindfold and asked me, tauntingly, if I would recognize my parents. With my eyes hurting from the strange light and anger in my voice, I assured him that I would. Suddenly I was pushed through the gate and the door was slammed behind me. After more than eight years, here I was, finally, out of jail.

Ghosts of revolution. Rekindled Memories of Imprisonment in Iran. by Shahla Talebi illustrated by Soudabeh Ardavan. After her release, Talebi would have to answer her relatives’ harmful accusations of not doing enough to save her husband. Nearly unbearable revelations by a brave writer determined to embrace life rather than despair.

"Opening the enormous metal gate, the guard suddenly took away my blindfold and asked me, tauntingly, if I would recognize my parents. With my eyes hurting from the strange light and anger in my voice, I assured him that I would. Suddenly I was pushed through the gate and the door was slammed behind me. After more than eight years, here I was, finally, out of jail . . . ."In this haunting account, Shahla Talebi remembers her years as a political prisoner in Iran. Talebi, along with her husband, was imprisoned for nearly a decade and tortured, first under the Shah and later by the Islamic Republic. Writing about her own suffering and survival and sharing the stories of her fellow inmates, she details the painful reality of prison life and offers an intimate look at a critical period of social and political transformation in Iran. Somehow through it all―through resistance and resolute hope, passion and creativity―Talebi shows how one survives. Reflecting now on experiences past, she stays true to her memories, honoring the love of her husband and friends lost in these events, to relate how people can hold to moments of love, resilience, and friendship over the dark forces of torture, violence, and hatred. At once deeply personal yet clearly political, part memoir and part meditation, this work brings to heartbreaking clarity how deeply rooted torture and violence can be in our society. More than a passing judgment of guilt on a monolithic "Islamic State," Talebi's writing asks us to reconsider our own responses to both contemporary debates of interrogation techniques and government responsibility and, more simply, to basic acts of cruelty in daily life. She offers a lasting call to us all."The art of living in prison becomes possible through imagining life in the very presence of death and observing death in the very existence of life. It is living life so vitally and so fully that you are willing, if necessary, to let that very life go, as one would shed chains on the legs. It is embracing, and flying on the wings of death as though it is the bird of freedom."

Shahla Talebi's memoir, Ghosts of Revolution, tells the true story of her political imprisonment during Iran's Islamic Revolution, its emotional tolls and cascading affects on her friends, family and loved ones. Talebi poetically details specific accounts of her torture, both physical and psychological, without fetishizing the brutality for its emotional power. Her prose is artistic and lyrical, which elevates the narrative beyond its somber and depressing reality. Talebi should be commended for highlighting the abuses of her fellow prisoners as well, rather than merely focusing on her own experiences. This allows her to provide a more objective, all encompassing account. Readers will appreciate the emotional roller-coaster her memoir takes us, as well as leave with a solid historical account of the Islamic Republic's brutality against political prisoners. I cannot recommend it enough!

Ghosts of Revolution is a powerful creation of prisons and prisoners in Iran. The inmates, the cruelty of the guards and the prison system, are drawn vividly and with great attention to details and meaning. The insights are profound. You can't help being deeply moved both by the author who herself was once an inmate and by the other inmates she brings to life in this narration.

Too many foreign expressions to try to comprehend. The emotions expressed by the author are flat lined that didn't resonate!

If you are looking for work that looks at imprisonment in Iran with any intellectual depth, this is it. This is a beautifully and intelligently written book about the author's experience under two authoritarian regimes in Iran, and does not subscribe to cheap binaries of victimhood and persecution. Excellent book for anyone who is also doing research in the larger subject areas of torture, imprisonment, humanity, etc.
