I'm buying this book!
In today's edition of Meridian Magazine, I found this review of a book I most assuredly am going to purchase, and then read thoughtfully, probably more than once. The book was written by Ann Madsen, and is reviewed here by her husband, Dr. Truman Madsen. I wish I could supply a copy of it to my young Iranian friend, who I suspect would feel very much at home in the company of the twelve women who are the subjects of this book.
(Update: I ordered the book a few hours after posting this entry. Also, Barney has brought my attention to another link, which features some reviews and comments about this book. It may be found here. )
