The Award-winning International Bestselling Story of One Man's Six Year
Detention in Australia In 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani sought
asylum in Australia but was instead illegally imprisoned in the country's
most notorious detention centre on Manus Island. He has been there ever
since. This book is the result. Behrouz Boochani spent nearly five years
typing passages of this book one text at a time from a secret mobile phone
in prison. Compiled and translated from Farsi, they form an incredible
story of how escaping political persecution in Iran, he ended up trapped as
a stateless person. This vivid, gripping portrait of his years of
incarceration and exile shines devastating light on the fates of so many
people as borders close around the world. No Friend but the Mountains is
both a brave act of witness and a moving testament to the humanity of all
people, in the most extreme of circumstances. 'A brilliant book. No Friend
but the Mountains can rightly take its place on the shelf of world prison
literature . . . It is a profound victory for a young poet who showed us
all how much words can still matter.' - Richard Flanagan, Booker Prize
winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North
