Guy Delisle

Picture of the book cover for Guy Delisle's Pyongyang.If you enjoy the wonders of armchair travel, you may want to look at our graphic novel collection. Cartoonist and animator Guy Delisle has created four terrific graphic novels about his experiences living around the world. These black & white works are simple yet detailed, and give you real insight into his experiences of living in some of the world's most interesting places. In Shenzen, he experiences the southern Chinese city while supervising animators for a Belgian animation company. The totalitarian weirdness of North Korea is evident in Pyongyang; he unsuccessfully tries to convince his guide to read Orwell's 1984. Next is Burma Chronicles, detailing time spent there with his wife and infant son, after which he sees firsthand Israel and occupied West Bank in Jerusalem. Quick reads, but hard-hitting ones.
