The Burma Chronicles by Guy Delisle

The author is married to a Doctors Without Borders physician who is working in Burma. He describes the joys and pains of living there in a low key way. It is funny and moving. I am going to look for his other books where (I hope) he does the same thing in China and North Korea.


  1. I can vouch for the China one -- very nice.

  2. Thanks... the library is getting that one for me too.

  3. I just read Burma Chronicles yesterday. Wonderful graphic novel with a geopolitical slant. Can't wait to read Pyongyang.
