Summary "At best the power of love can shine through anywhere. For years the political prisoner and his wife had to communicate by six lines at a time. The correspondence became an endless struggle to, each time as if for the last time, thoroughly express the longing for reunion. Nooshabeh Amiri & Houshang Asadi are journalists, writers, and political activists from Iran. They now share an exiled life in France. Nooshabeh Amiri (b. 1952) began her career in journalism in 1971 in Tehran. She writes on political, social and gender issues; and has been subjected to numerous cases of censorship in Iran before her exile in 2003. In this edition the letters are accompanied by her commentary, offering a personal and historical context. Houshang Asadi (b. 1950) has had his career as a journalist and editor interrupted by prison terms both before and after the 1979 Revolution."--
