A Journey in North Korea
Delisle, Guy (Book - 2005 )
Average Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.

Item Details

Voted "Best of" by CBC Radio One's "Talking Books," the American Library Association and Time.com.More timely than ever, Guy Delisle's acclaimed Pyongyang is a glimpse into one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today: North Korea. Pyongyang is a graphical record of the time cartoonist Guy Delisle spent working as an animator in Pyongyang, becoming one of the few Westerners to witness current conditions in the surreal showcase city."The memoir is topical, coming at a time when interest in the goings-on behind the last remaining panel of the Iron Curtain is high. [...] The episodes are smart, sharply observed and funny, without downplaying the untold horrors (death camps, starvation) that lurk around every corner." (Globe and Mail)"Tinged with black humour, ...[Pyongyang] offers a perspective no straight-up print journalism could." (National Post)
