Description

THE POPULAR TRAVELOGUE NOW IN PAPERBACK

From the author of "Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea" and "Shenzhen: A Travelogue from China" comes "Burma Chronicles," an informative look at a country that uses concealment and isolation as social control. It is drawn with Guy Delisle's minimal line, interspersed with wordless vignettes and moments of his distinctive slapstick humor.



About the Author
Born in Quebec City in 1966, GUY DELISLE spent a decade working in animation in Europe and Asia. In 2005-2006, he accompanied his wife, an administrator for Doctors Without Borders, on a fourteen-month posting in Burma.
