Summary: Zainab Salbi was eleven years old when her father was chosen to be Saddam Hussein's personal pilot and her family's life was grafted onto his. Her mother, the beautiful Alia, taught her daughter the skills she needed to survive. A plastic smile. Saying yes. Burying in boxes in her mind the horrors she glimpsed around her. ''Learn to erase your memories,'' she instructed. ''He can read eyes.'' In this richly visual memoir, Salbi describes tyranny as she saw it--through the eyes of a p
rivileged child, a rebellious teenager, a violated wife, and ultimately a public figure fighting to overcome the skill that once kept her alive: silence. Between Two Worldsis a riveting quest for truth that deepens our understanding of the universal themes of power, fear, sexual subjugation, and the question one generation asks the one before it: How could you have let this happen to us? BACKCOVER: Praise for Between Two Worlds: ''...a torrent of vividly recalled memories [that] reads with the sort of artless verve that can come only from one who's been unshackled from a lifetime of repression.'' ?Vogue ''A remarkable, astonishing memoir...more can be learned about Iraq from this book than from all the newscasts.'' ?Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple ?A country unravels and a loving family dissolves in Zainab Salbi's riveting, beautifully observed memoir...This is the exquisite if often painful story of Salbi's own emergence from victim to global activist on behalf of women survivors of violence and war everywhere. I guarantee you won't be able to put it down.? ?Ellen Chesler, author of Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America ?A personal, intimate look at the soul-crushing impact of Hussein?s Iraq. . . . Salbi deploys a straightforward, easy prose that is powerful in its simplicity. . . . Now, with her chilling memoir, the lies end.? ?The Washington Post ?Salbi has direct personal knowledge of Hussein that is both insightful and disturbing.? ?Ms.magazine ?Engrossing. . . . a unique insider perspective . . . an evocative and haunting memoir that proves that one courageous woman can rise above her own painful past in order to make a difference in the lives of others.? ?Bookreporter.com ?A remarkable tale of emotional and mental resilience.? ?Bookpage ?. . . a steadfast visionary spirit prevails, rendered with remarkable literary skill and complex personalities.? ?Bust
