On October 16, 2017, the first anniversary of Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s release, Hachette (U.S.) and Canongate (U.K.) will release a new RESTORED edition of Guantánamo Diary. Order information is here.
The new edition, with redactions filled in and a beautiful new introduction by Mohamedou, at last brings his full ordeal in U.S. custody into the light.
“Repairing this broken text has been about seeing things that someone wanted hidden,” Mohamedou writes. “The result, like the original uncensored manuscript, is as close as I can come to the truth as I experienced it and understand it, in the best form I can express it.”
With this edition, Mohamedou’s long quest to tell his story is complete.
