A Tale of Love

More Prison Poems
Soft Cover

Limited Edition! This is the second volume of poetry by Mahvash Sabet, who was named Writer of Courage by Michael Longley at the PEN Pinter Prize ceremony in 2017. Sabet was imprisoned in March 2008 and initially condemned to a 20-year jail sentence for her belief in the Bahá’í Faith. Although she was released in September 2017, she was arrested once again, in July 2022, and sentenced to a further 10 years on the same baseless grounds. She is currently incarcerated in Evin Prison in Tehran.

This new collection comes with an introduction to Mahvash by one of the most famous prisoners of conscience in Iran condemned for her fight for women’s rights and freedom, Narges Mohammadi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner of 2023.
