The Mauritanian

By Mohamedou Ould Slahi

£9.99

Since 2002, Mohamedou Slahi has been imprisoned at the detainee camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In all these years, the United States has never charged him with a crime. Although he was ordered to be released by a federal judge, the U.S. government fought that decision, and there is no sign that the United States plans to let him go. Three years into his captivity Slahi began a diary, recounting his life before he disappeared into U.S. custody and daily life as a detainee. His diary is not merely a vivid record of a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir – terrifying, darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious.

Description

Previously published as Guantánamo Diary, this momentous account and international bestseller is soon to be a major motion picture

The first and only diary written by a Guantánamo detainee during his imprisonment, now with previously censored material restored.

Mohamedou Ould Slahi was imprisoned in Guantánamo Bay in 2002.

There he suffered the worst of what the prison had to offer, including months of sensory deprivation, torture and sexual assault.

In October 2016 he was released without charge.

This is his extraordinary story, as inspiring as it is enraging.
