About the Author: Shirin Ebadi

Shirin Ebadi (Persian: شیرین عبادی - Širin Ebâdi; born 21 June 1947) is an Iranian lawyer, human rights activist and founder of Children's Rights Support Association in Iran. On October 10, 2003, Ebadi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her significant and pioneering efforts for democracy and human rights, especially women's, children's, and refugee rights. She was the first ever Iranian to have received the prize.Ebadi was born in Hamadan, Iran. Her father, Mohammad Ali Ebadi, was the city's chief notary public and professor of commercial law. The family moved to Tehran in 1948.
Ebadi was admitted to the law department University of Tehran in 1965 and upon graduation in 1969 passed the qualification exams to become a judge. After a six-month internship period, she officially started her judging career in March 1969. She continued her studies in University of Tehran in the meanwhile and received a master's degree in law in 1971. In 1975, she became the first woman to preside over a legislative court.
Following the Iranian revolution in 1979, conservative clerics insisted that Islam prohibits women from becoming judges and Ebadi was demoted to a secretarial position at the branch where she had previously presided. She and other female judges protested and were assigned to the slightly higher position of "law expert." She eventually requested early retirement as the situation remained unchanged.
As her applications were repeatedly rejected, Ebadi was not able to practice as a lawyer until 1993, while she already had a law office permit. She used this free time to write books and many articles in Iranian periodicals, which made her known widely.

Esta novela narra la historia de una familia dividida por la Revolución y unida en un destino trágico, el de su país, Irán. Pero es también la historia de una amistad entre niñas surgida de un puñado de dulces de almendra que sobrevivió indemne a los impetuosos años de la infancia y a la inquietud de la adolescencia a través de unas cartas que viajaban con la regularidad de un diario íntimo, lleno de confidencias, recetas y memorias. Y es, sobre todo, la historia de cómo dos mujeres, en nombre de esa antigua amistad, lucharán por la vida y la memoria de un Irán hermoso, atormentado y cruel.
