The Stoning of Soraya M.

This book tells the true story of a person stoned in an Iranian village sometime after the Revolution. Soraya M’s husband Ghorban-Ali wanted out of his marriage, and accused his wife of adultery. She was taken away, buried and stoned to death. The son of a former Iranian ambassador, French journalist and war correspondent Freidoune Sahebjam wrote the book after his experience in the village. His book was turned into a script for the film (also included).
