Hostage by Guy Delisle( Book )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the middle of the night in 1997, Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe André was kidnapped by armed men and taken away to an unknown destination in the Caucasus region. For three months, André was kept handcuffed in solitary confinement, with little to survive on and almost no contact with the outside world. Close to twenty years later, award-winning cartoonist Guy Delisle (Pyongyang, Jerusalem, Shenzhen, Burma Chronicles) recounts André's harrowing experience in Hostage, a book that attests to the power of one man's determination in the face of a hopeless situation. Marking a departure from the author's celebrated first-person travelogues, Delisle tells the story through the perspective of the titular captive, who strives to keep his mind alert as desperation starts to set in. Working in a pared down style with muted colour washes, Delisle conveys the psychological effects of solitary confinement, compelling us to ask ourselves some difficult questions regarding the repercussions of negotiating with kidnappers and what it really means to be free. Thoughtful, intense, and moving, Hostage takes a profound look at what drives our will to survive in the darkest of moments"--

Burma chronicles by Guy Delisle( Book )

64 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guy Delisle’s travelogue revolves around a year spent in Burma (also known as Myanmar) with wife and son. Burma is notorious for its use of concealment and isolation as social control—where scissors-wielding censors monitor the papers, the de facto leader of the opposition has been under decade-long house arrest, insurgent-controlled regions are effectively cut off from the world, and rumour is the most reliable source of current information

A user's guide to neglectful parenting by Guy Delisle( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intimate, offbeat look at the joys of parenting. The trademark dry humor that pervades Guy Delisle's landmark and praised graphic travelogues takes center stage. Quick, light vignettes play on the worries and cares any young parent might have, and offer wry solutions to the petty frustrations of being a dad who works from home. Readers familiar with Delisle's stranger-in-a-strange-land technique for storytelling (employed in Jerusalem, Pyongyang, Burma, and Shenzhen) will recognize the parent in this book; the portrait of an all-too-irony-aware stay-at-home dad's ever-changing relationship with his young children while his wife is out working for Doctors Without Borders. Born in Quebec, Guy Delisle now lives in the South of France with his wife and son
Jerusalem : chronicles from the Holy City by Guy Delisle( Book )

37 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guy Delisle expertly lays the groundwork for a cultural road map of contemporary Jerusalem, utilizing the classic stranger-in-a-strange-land point of view that made his other books, Pyongyang, Shenzhen, and Burma Chronicles, required reading for understanding what daily life is like in cities few are able to travel to. In Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, Delisle explores the complexities of a city that represents so much to so many. He eloquently examines the impact of the conflict on the lives of people on both sides of the wall while drolly recounting the quotidian: checkpoints, traffic jams, and holidays. When observing the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim populations that call Jerusalem home, Delisle's drawn line is both sensitive and fair, assuming nothing and drawing everything. Jerusalem showcases once more Delisle's mastery of the travelogue

While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered; his findings form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel.

Shenzen by Guy Delisle( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shenzhen wurde 1980 als Sonderwirtschaftszone ausgerufen - seither gilt die Stadt als Chinas "Boomtown". Aus einem kleinen Küstenort im Schatten Hongkongs ist in rasender Geschwindigkeit eine wohlhabende Wirtschaftsmetropole geworden. Aufgrund der dicht an dicht stehenden Wolkenkratzer unterscheidet sich Shenzhen im Erscheinungsbild kaum von Hongkong, und auch wirtschaftlich sind die beiden Städte zunehmend als einheitliche Region zu sehen. Shenzhen übernimmt dabei immer mehr die der Stadt zugedachte Vorreiterrolle für ganz China: Hier floriert die Marktwirtschaft unter staatlicher Kontrolle. Guy Delisles Reisebericht aus der chinesischen Metropole ist das Ergebnis eines zweijährigen Aufenthalts in Shenzhen. Vor Ort, um die Herstellung einer Reihe von Trickfilmen für eine belgische Produktionsfirma zu koordinieren, wird Delisle mit alltäglichen Problemen konfrontiert, die er reich an Anekdoten schildert. Das Meistern der Verständigung mit den chinesischen Kollegen, ohne deren Sprache mächtig zu sein, ist dabei nur eine von vielen Herausforderungen
