Behrouz Boochani - No Friend but the MountainsNo Friend but the Mountains

Behrouz Boochani

Winner of the Victorian Prize for Literature and the Prize for Non-fiction, Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards 2019, this hugely important book has been compiled from hundreds of Farsi texts sent by Kurdish poet and journalist from Manus Island, where he has been illegally detained since 2013. Translated by Omid Tofighian, Boochani's account bears witness to the horrors and inhumanity of the Australian government’s treatment of asylum seekers.
