Guy Delisle's newest travelogue revolves around a year spent in Burma (also known as Myanmar) with his wife and son.
Burma is notorious for its use of concealment and isolation as social control: where scissor-wielding censors monitor the papers, the de facto leader of the opposition has been under decade-long house arrest, insurgent-controlled regions are effectively cut off from the world, and rumour is the most reliable source of current information.
An impressive and moving work of comics journalism from the author of Pyongyang and Shenzen.
