Summary
October, 2008. Mellissa Fung, a long-time reporter for CBC's The National, was leaving a refugee camp outside of Kabul when she was grabbed by armed men claiming to be Taliban, stabbed, stuffed into the back of a car and driven off into the desert. When the group finally reached a village in the middle of nowhere, her kidnappers pushed her towards a hole in the ground. For twenty-eight days, Mellissa Fung lived in that hole, which was barely big enough to stand up or lie down in, nursing her injuries, praying, writing in her notebook and, as a veteran journalist, interrogating her own captors. Some descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. Bestseller. 2011
