The Burma Chronicles by Guy Delisle, translated by Helge Dascher

burma-chroniclesWith amazingly effective simplicity, artist Guy Delisle takes you to Burma through an ex-pat’s perspective. He arrives with his wife, a Médecins San Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) aid worker, shortly after the devastating 2004 tsunami, who has a real job to go to. Meanwhile, Delisle is in charge of their young son, and together they explore their new surroundings, both mundane (the heat!) and enraging (the Burmese regime).
