Kissing the Sword

I finished reading Shahrnush Parsipur‘s autobiography “Kissing the Sword” this morning. It covers her years spent in prisons in Iran as a ‘political’ prisoner. How any person can survive through such experiences is inspirational – I doubt I could. Political extremism, whatever its colour or flavour is a dangerous animal and cares nothing about people on a human level.
