No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison

Behrouz Boochani, Omid Tofighian

‘Our government jailed his body, but his soul remained that of a free man.’ Richard Flanagan

In 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani was illegally and indefinitely detained on Manus Island.

This book is the result. Written on a smuggled mobile phone and translated from Farsi, it is a voice of witness, an act of survival. A lyric first-hand account. A cry of resistance. A vivid portrait through six years of incarceration and exile that - against all the odds - became an award-winning national bestseller.
