by | Read by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Biography & Memoir • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

To hear this powerful story read by the woman who lived it is a life-changing experience. Ali survived civil war and mutilation to become an international spokeswoman for Islamic reform, especially with respect to women's rights. Her escape from Saudi Arabia and Somalia to the free-thinking Netherlands is stark in its incomprehensible contrasts and sometimes darkly amusing in its misunderstandings of cultural differences. Ali earned a political science degree and became the first Muslim member of the Dutch parliament. She worked with Theo Van Gogh on the film SUBMISSION before he was assassinated by a fanatical Muslim terrorist who objected to the film. Ali's thick accent makes some words unintelligible, but her acuity and vigor counterbalance this to make the listener all the more in awe of her.
