GUY DESILE - FROM PYONGYANG TO SHENZEN:
A CARTOONIST ABROAD


What do you do if you’re posted alone to North Korea and then China to supervise animation productions? Isolated French-Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle seized the opportunity to record the baffling everyday strangeness and unsettling hidden facets of these little-understood societies. He talks to novelist Michel Faber about creating his secret graphic diaries as a fresh form of insightful travel-writing and reportage based on acute observation. Guy Delisle will be available to sign copies of hs books Pyongyang and Shenzen from 3.00pm to 3.30pm in the ICA Bar.

Where: ICA, The Mall, London
When: Sunday, October 8, 2006 - 2pm to 3pm
