No Friend but the Mountains

  • Where have I come from? From the land of rivers, the land of waterfalls, the land of ancient chants, the land of mountains...

    In 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani was illegally detained on Manus Island. He has been there ever since.

    People would run to the mountains to escape the warplanes and found asylum within their chestnut forests...

    This book is the result. Laboriously tapped out on a mobile phone and translated from the Farsi. It is a voice of witness, an act of survival. A lyric first-hand account. A cry of resistance. A vivid portrait through five years of incarceration and exile.
