Guy Delisle Takes His Harrowing Book ‘Hostage’ On Tour In May For Drawn & Quarterly

by Staff

 

Guy Delisle will be launching his new Drawn & Quarterly book Hostage in May, a non-fiction work which is bound to grip readers. It recounts the true story of a harrowing experience in 1997 for Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe André who was held captive for over three months in the Caucasus region. Exploring André’s day-to-day survival and the impact of solitary confinement, the book questions what gives human beings a will to survive. The 436 page graphic novel is being published in two color, hardback format.

Delisle is going to be on tour for the release of Hostage in May in several locations in North America.
