Book Review: Pyongyang

Comic book writer Guy Delisle spent several months living and working in North Korea, the most unknowable country of modern times. In Pyongyang : a journey in North Korea, Delisle recounts his experience using spare black and white cartoon drawings to accompany his autobiographical tale.

This poignant and bittersweet tale can be read in one sitting and can be enjoyed by comics fans and current events enthusiasts alike. Unlike many of our other graphic novels, Pyongyang is shelved on the first floor; its call number is 951.9304 DEL.
