GUY DELISLE spent the past year living in Burma. He has written four graphic novels in French; Shenzhen is his second translated into English. He was born in Quebec and lives in France.
"Though classified as a graphic novelist, Delisle has claimed territory all his own as a graphic-travel memoirist."
"While never preaching, this volume makes a forceful case for creative license and personal liberty, as the artist discovers that there's no place like home."
A sharp eye for detail, self-deprecating humor and subtle, shadowy drawings highlight this engaging, ambitious graphic narrative.
