What is it like to be trapped in the war on terror? Nothing symbolizes the endless cycle and contradictions of the conflict as much as Guantánamo prison does. The remarkable memoir Guantánamo Diary is an acclaimed international bestseller and the first and only account written by a still-imprisoned Guantánamo detainee. The New Yorker urged, “Everyone should read [it]… a triumph of humanity over chaos.” Larry Siems, writer and former director of the Freedom to Write program at PEN American Center, edited the handwritten manuscript. Peter Jan Honigsberg is founder and director of the Witness to Guantánamo project.
