Yes I already knew him from his other works, but damn, the guy is so hard to like. And being about a country that many of us wouldn’t visit, Guy’s book gives us a unique chroniquess into a country and people we only hear about vaguely in modern history books and sometimes in the news in reference to their government.
The fact that you take this incredible act of gallantry totally for granted. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources.

Drawing from his experience at animation studios in China and North Korea, Delisle’s graphic novels Shenzen and Pyongyang depict these two countries from a Westerner’s perspective. But it’s good that some of them are available O: I am already a major fan of his drawing abilities.
To preserve your position as an observer is missing in the most of travelogues, memoirs etc. One person found this helpful. Guy Delisle seems more accepting towards the local culture in Burma Chronicles than what nirmanes seemed to be in Pyongyang: It could be a hard landing.

He is a stay at home dad, working on his cartoon books including this graphic presentation of his stay in Burma. One of the charms of Delisle’s comics are the frames where it’s just him looking puzzled and not saying anything. Retrieved 8 February In all this, Delilsle fails to note the selfless compassion shown by a man who at least once walked back to his home without an umbrella to help out two grown men who were incapable of making their way through the same rain.
The attempt to insert the judgements and lessons learned in the work is permeating every time I try to get my hand on and they often left me a bit underwhelmed because their statement of “verified true story” while on the other side, there’s nothing much more than a person’s narrative.
Lots of insight on Burma culture and many cultural shocks from an obliterated country! Will surely check out his other travelogues.

There is a sad scene of meeting an elderly woman who, because she remembers a better country, apologizes for the state things are in.
Also, there is great informative value in seeing the Myanmar reality through the eyes of a westerner, with a focus on the visual aspects.

There are social events, searches for working internet connections, attempts to see or reach Aung San Suu Kyi, and monks who go door to door each day with their bowls. I’m now officially a big fan.
But because that’s not how they do i So here’s what sums up why this book failed to impress me: This graphic novel is similar to his other travelogues I’ve read, Pyongyang and Jerusalemin birmwnes he draws his day-to-day life and his experiences in the region.
