New America Now: Between Two Worlds

New America Now, Audio, Posted: May 18, 2010


This week on New America Now: Roxana Saberi talks about her experience in an Iranian prison, Peter Hessler goes Country Driving in China, and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is the author of One Amazing Thing.

Sandip Roy talks to:

Just as Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi was about to leave Iran after reporting there for BBC, NPR, and other news outlets, she was awoken by security officials who said they wanted to interrogate her. This began a nightmarish descent into the Iranian prison system chronicled in Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran


In the summer of 2001 as the automobile was taking off in China, Peter Hessler traveled by car for 7000 miles along the Great Wall of China. He got a first hand look at a country in the middle of change. He is the author of Country Driving: A Journey Through China from Farm to Factory


Author Chitra Banerjee brings together an unlikely cast of characters as she writes about grace under pressure during an earthquake to create a multiethnic, multigenerational, society of immigrants and native born men and women struggling to survive in One Amazing Thing.
