Industry Reviews

'Asiye's rape, torture and maltreatment while in detention are described with searing and dignified clarity.' New Statesman 'A political memoir that articulates all that happened without shame ... courageous.' The Guardian 'One of the first detailed accounts of state-based sexual violence, smuggled out of Turkey chapter by chapter, will encourage other women (and some men) to come forward and talk openly about their experience of rape and sexual abuse.' The Times 'However appalling and incredible, the events described in these pages must be read. Asiye's courage shines through every page of this sensitive account, making Asiye's Story as uplifting as it is harrowing.' Anne Sebba 'Asiye speaks for countless women who have been tortured and assaulted. She has found words for the fear, pain and loneliness, and faced her oppressors whilst determined not to surrender to the suffering.' Helen Bamber OBE
