About the Author
SHANE BAUER, SARAH SHOURD, and JOSHUA FATTAL were imprisoned in Iran in 2009. Shourd was released one year later and worked to secure Bauer and Fattal's return in 2011. Since then, the three have pursued careers as writers.
"Riveting and necessary and illuminating in countless unexpected ways. The hikers have pulled off the almost impossible task of making from their hellish experience something of beauty and grace." -- Dave Eggers "A Sliver of Light weaves a spellbinding tale of hard-won survival at the intersection of courage and love -- the love of friends struggling to support one another in wretched circumstances, the unyielding bedrock of mothers' love for their long-lost children, and the fiercely tested love of three people for the family of humankind. It is a triumph of writing born of a triumph of being." -- Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon --
