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.

"A vision of hell, beyond Orwell, beyond Kafka" -- JOHN LE CARRÉ

"An extraordinary account . . . the global war on terror has found in a Mauritanian captive its true and complete witness" ― Guardian

"Unnerving yet ultimately magnificent . . . there is something special about Guantánamo Diary that lifts it from human rights polemic to the realm of literary magic" ― Sunday Times

"The work is a kind of dark masterpiece, a sometimes unbearable epic of pain, anguish and bitter humour" ― New York Times

"Heartbreaking . . . there has never been a book quite like this . . . extraordinary and overwhelming" ― New Statesman

"This Guantánamo detainee's harrowing memoir is a tremendous achievement - and a grave warning against ignoring the rule of law" ― Observer

"This is a necessary book. It reminds us that the evil we're fighting can be found in ourselves as well as our enemies" ― Daily Telegraph

"A sobering, often chilling, read. Slahi's story deserves to be widely read" ― Independent

"Slahi's book offers a reminders that the struggles we face in these difficult times involve real individuals, not faceless creatures who are to be characterised as members as one or other hated group. That he has resorted to words, the mightiest of weapons, even as his incarceration continues, makes his experience all the more relevant today" ― Financial Times

"A harrowing account of [Mohamedou Ould Slahi's] detention, interrogation, and abuse . . . One of the most stubborn, deliberate and cruel Guantánamo interrogations on record" ― Slate
