Product Description

Review

"Superb book of reportage from that city." (Rachel Cooke Observer)

"His witty observation and beautiful pictures are delightful." (Sarah Ison Times Higher Education)

"A witty, wise graphic travelogue that says more about everyday life in the region than all the news reports and "gritty" features." (Chris Moss Sunday Telegraph)

"A wonderfully candid book, which makes the situation’s hideously insoluble complexities more vividly understandable than anything else I have encountered." (Rupert Christiansen Daily Telegraph)

"My other favourite graphic book of the year... makes breathtakingly light work of one of the world’s most complex political situations." (Rachel Cooke Observer)

Book Description

Acclaimed graphic memoirist Guy Delisle returns with his strongest work yet - a thoughtful and moving travelogue about life in the Holy City.

With brilliant sketches and a dry sense of humour, Guy takes you along with him on his interesting journey in a troubled land. Read this and you will be wanting to read his others.

A great book, which through the atmospheric illustrations and well-constructed stories gives an entertaining and thought-provoking account of life in Jerusalem and the West Bank (as well as the wider background of Israel/Palestine conflict).

I have visited most of the towns mentioned in the book and found Guy Deslisle's drawings incredibly effective at capturing both the look and atmosphere of those locations. They brought back strong memories and stirred my emotions, reigniting the sense of disbelief and outrage that I felt when there, particularly in Hebron and regarding the checkpoints and the wall.

Some may find that the author leans too far politically in one direction, but in my view his mindset is a natural consequence of spending time in the area. I doubt there are too many westerners in east Jerusalem or the West Bank who disagree with him.

An interesting and well-crafted book about a fascinating part of the world.

Less funny than previous works (I've read Bhurma, Shenzen and Pyongyang - maybe more "exotic" and surprising), but still pretty good!

This is by far the best book of Guy Delisle has made so far, i just loved it. The drawings are really well done and the book is as usual very thought provoking and funny.

I love Delisles work and this next book does not disappoint. His books are a great intro for graphic novels if you are wanting to encourage a friend.

you can, but I found it "as it is" He spoiled it with one anti semetic picture, he could do with removing that- would give his book a lot more cred
