Genre


Born in Quebec, Canada, Guy Delisle studied animation at Sheridan College. Delisle has worked for numerous animation studios around the world, including CinéGroupe in Montreal.

Drawing from his experience at animation studios in China and North Korea, Delisle's graphic novels Shenzen and Pyongyang depict these two countries from a Westerner's perspective. A third graphic novel, Chroniques Birmanes, recounts his time spent in Myanmar with his wife, a Médecins Sans Frontières administrator.

Guy Delisle isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

“It'll always be easier to fight others if you reduce them to a single word or look at them just one way.”
Guy Delisle, Chroniques de Jérusalem

“Because with time blocking out the bad, memory is always bound to be a bit naive and stupidly optimistic.”
Guy Delisle, Shenzhen: A Travelogue from China

“Actually, the Burmese don't refer to her by name. They just call her "The Lady." It's like Voldemort in Harry Potter, "He Who Must Not Be Named.”
Guy Delisle, Burma Chronicles
