In 2013, Kurdish-Iranian journalist Behrouz Boochani used to be illegally detained on Manus Island, a refugee detention centre off the coast of Australia.

This e book is the end result. Laboriously tapped out on a cell 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 bright portrait of 5 years of incarceration and exile.

Winner of the Victorian Finest’s Prize for Literature, Australia’s richest literary prize, No Loved one However the Mountains is an atypical account ― one that may be disturbingly consultant of the revel in of the various stateless and imprisoned refugees and migrants world wide.
