    • Eight O' Clock Ferry to the Windward Side: Seeking Justice in Guantanamo Bay by Clive Stafford Smith (Nation Books, 2007)

The Guardian today posted this notice about a live question and answer session on their website at 1.30 p.m. GMT with Nation Books author and founder of the legal charity Reprieve Clive Stafford Smith. Smith is the author of the 2007 title Eight O' Clock Ferry to the Windward Side, about his experiences defending prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

On Monday the Guardian and others published a cache of files on Guantánamo Bay detainees, which lift the lid on life inside the controversial prison camp in Cuba.

The files contain details of inmates who passed through Guantánamo, including a number of British nationals and residents held by US authorities, who were aware that they were not members of the Taliban or al-Qaida. The files also reveal that almost 100 of those detained at the camp are listed by captors as having had a depressive or psychotic illness.
