Abstract:

"Shenzhen is Guy Delisle's observations of life in a cold city in southern China that is sealed off by electric fences and armed guards from the rest of the country. Delisle makes the most of his time spent in Asia overseeing outsourced production for a French animation company. By translating his fish-out-of-water experiences into accessible graphic novels, Delisle is quick to find the humor and point out the differences between Western and Eastern cultures. Yet he never forgets to relay his compassion for the simple freedoms that escape his colleagues by virtue of living in a Communist state."
