The Guantánamo Files: available now in the US


The Guantanamo FilesWhile waiting for my ship to come in –- the one that’s carrying the UK copies of The Guantánamo Files from the US printers –- I failed to notice that the book is already on sale in the US: Amazon here, University of Michigan Press here. The UK release date is officially November 8, but copies will also be on sale here within a week or so, and they can be pre-ordered from Amazon here or Pluto Press here. Signed copies will be available directly from me as soon as I have them, although the postage costs may be rather off-putting for anyone outside the UK/EU.

In other media developments, Slovenian speakers are directed to an article in the Slovenian newspaper Dnevnik by the journalist Kristina Bozic, who interviewed me in London recently. Those lacking the necessary linguistic skills may like to know that Kristina took the time to transcribe the interview, which I’ll be making available soon, once I’ve proof-read it, and –- er –- probably removed some of the more outré comments that I made about my least favourite Vice President after a few too many espressos. Manca Juvan, a photographer and fellow Slovenian, took the photo, which is dynamic, even if the bloke in it woke up in a hedge and forgot to shave. More of her work –- featuring considerably more impressive subject matter –- is available on her website, and it’s well worth a look.

And finally, for now, the documentary about Guantánamo and the secret prisons, which I first mentioned here, is progressing well, with Clive Stafford Smith and Moazzam Begg both taking time out of their incredibly busy schedules over the last few weeks to talk with passion and eloquence about Guantánamo. Work will start soon on editing it, and I hope to have a few clips to show in the not too distant future.

Note: The interview with Kristina, in English, is available here.
