In honor of International Human Rights Day, the John V. Roach Honors College presents Dr. Omid Tofighian, collaborator and translator of No Friend but the Mountains.
In 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani was illegally detained on Manus Island, PNG. He has recently escaped to New Zealand but his future remains unclear.
This book is the result of Dr. Tofighian translating Boochani’s texts tapped out on a mobile phone from inside jail over several years. Come listen to this vivid portrait through six years of incarceration and exile.
