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, i 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.

"Bears lucid, poetic and devastating witness to the insane barbarity enacted in our name."
Michelle de Kretser 

"A poetic, yet harrowing read, and every Australian household should have a copy."
Maxine Beneba Clarke

"A powerful account...made me feel ashamed and outraged. Behrouz's writing is lyrical and poetic, though the horrors he describes are unspeakable."
Sofie Laguna

"A shattering book every Australian should read."
Benjamin Law

"A magnificent writer. To understand the true nature of what it is that we have done, every Australian, beginning with the prime minister, should read Behrouz Boochani's intense, lyrical and psychologically perceptive prose-poetry masterpiece."
The Age
