Publisher's Description

The year is 1979 and Ezra Solaiman and his family are trapped in a country in turmoil. Their homeland is increasingly ruled by Islamic fundamentalists who are becoming a law unto themselves. The Solaimans plan their escape only to have Ezra captured and imprisoned on trumped-up charges. Unsure just who his enemies are, Ezra is desperate for a way out—out of prison, out of Iran, out of the chaos his life has become. The Moving Prison is a riveting tale of revolution and revelation, of failure ... and faith.

Author Bio

William Mirza was born in northwestern Iran in 1904 and emigrated to the United States in 1958. Inspired by the literary style of Charles Dickens, William decided as a young man that someday he would be a writer. Twenty-six years after emigrating to the United States, at age eighty and with only twenty percent of his vision left, he decided to write a novel. After thirty-nine rejections, The Moving Prison (formerly titled Passport) was published with the help of Thom Lemmons five months before William died at age ninety. He is survived by two sons and a daughter who live in California and Colorado.

Thom Lemmons is the author of twelve works of fiction, including the Christy Award–winning King’s Ransom (with Jan Beazley) and, most recently, Blameless, a modern-day retelling of the Job story. Thom is the managing editor at Texas A&M University Press in College Station.

Editorial Reviews

"A fine novel of both the triumph and defeat of the human spirit, giving us yet another parallel to the Holocaust story and to all tales of religious persecution."

    This was an absolutely remarkable story of a family's perspective on what can happen to a country with freedom and openness when it moves to a totalitarian regime. Often we fail to sense in advance what such a state can mean when religious intolerance is the root of the change.

    The characters are so believable and the plot is so realistic that your heart will actually race as you move with these wonderfully strong people through their heartache and disillusionment. Breaking from tradition often means alienation from loved ones and friends. This story is all of that and so much more. A must read!
