Abstract:

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.
