Description - Shenzhen by Guy Delisle

Shenzhen is entertainingly compact with Guy Delisle s observations of life in a cold urban city in southern China that is sealed off by electric fences and armed guards from the rest of the country. With a dry wit and a clean line, Delisle makes the most of his time spent in Asia overseeing outsourced production for a French animation company. By translating his fish-out-of-water experiences into accessible graphic novels, Delisle is quick to find the humour and point out the differences between Western and Eastern cultures. Yet he never forgets to relay his compassion for the simple freedoms that escape his colleagues by virtue of living in a Communist state.
