Honeymoon in Tehran: Two Years of Love and Danger in Iran

Azadeh Moaveni, Carrington MacDuffie

Azadeh Moaveni was an American reporter covering the rise of Ahmadinejad in Tehran when the unexpected happened: she met her soul-mate, fell in love, and became pregnant. Facing an uncertain future, she continued to publish increasingly sensitive reports on Iran, while hiding her pregnancy from the religious authorities until she could marry. Shortly after giving birth, a government source, known mysteriously as Mr. X, told her that she was the subject of an investigation and would soon be arrested and sent to the notorious Evin prison. As it became evident that she was being spied on, Moaveni feared for her safety and that of her young family, and in 2007, she fled the country she had hoped to help through her journalism. This is a powerful and poignant story about a young woman facing her future in a very dangerous place.
