No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison

No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Boochani, Behrouz
Translated by Tofighian, Omid

I am disintegrated and dismembered, my decrepit past fragmented and scattered, no longer integral, unable to become whole once again. The total collection of scenes turned like pages of a short story, churned through with the speed of light. My god, prison is so horrific. Since 2...013, journalist Behrouz Boochani has been held in the Manus Island offshore processing centre. This book is the result: an act of survival. A first-hand account. A cry of resistance. A vivid portrait of four years of incarceration.
