The acclaimed national bestseller, the first and only diary
written by a Guantánamo detainee during his imprisonment, now with
previously censored material restored.
When Guantánamo Diary was first published–heavily redacted
by the U.S. government–in 2015, Mohamedou Ould Slahi was still
imprisoned at the detainee camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, despite a
federal court ruling ordering his release, and it was unclear when or
if he would ever see freedom. In October 2016, he was finally
released and reunited with his family. During his 14-year
imprisonment, the United States never charged him with a crime.
Now for the first
time, he is able to tell his story in full, with previously censored
material restored. This searing diary is not merely a vivid record of
a miscarriage of justice, but a deeply personal memoir—terrifying,
darkly humorous, and surprisingly gracious. Guantánamo Diary
is a document of immense emotional power and historical importance.
