Exiled Iranian journalist Nazila Fathi offers an insider’s look at unrest and inequality in Iran, beginning with the country’s 1979 revolution. The Lonely War chronicles regional history, political tensions, and the dramatic shift that occurred–and is still occurring–in her home country. Weaving together interviews with officials, ordinary citizens, and her personal story, she’ll give insight into the current political landscape, issues faced by women in the Islamic Republic, and offer her opinion on how its continually-evolving citizens are forging a path toward the future. Both political and personal, her probing inquiries into modern Iran will offer a glimpse at how the most drastic changes in Iran are starting in the domestic sphere, and rippling outward.
