Description

2012 FAUVE D'OR AT THE FESTIVAL INTL DE LA BANDE DESSINEE D'ANGOULEMEAcclaimed graphic memoirist Guy Delisle returns with his strongest work yet—a thoughtful and moving travelogue about life in the Holy City.

Guy Delisle expertly lays the groundwork for a cultural road map of contemporary Jerusalem, utilizing the classic stranger in a strange land point of view that made his other books, Pyongyang, Shenzhen, and Burma Chronicles, required reading for understanding what daily life is like in cities few are able to travel to.

In Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, Delisle explores the complexities of a city that represents so much to so many.

He eloquently examines the impact of the conflict on the lives of people on both sides of the wall while drolly recounting the quotidian: checkpoints, traffic jams, and holidays. When observing the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim populations that call Jerusalem home, Delisle’s drawn line is both sensitive and fair, assuming nothing and drawing everything.

Jerusalem showcases once more Delisle’s mastery of the travelogue. Jerusalem has been translated from the French by Helge Dascher.

Dascher has been translating graphic novels from French and German to English for over twenty years.

A contributor to Drawn & Quarterly since the early days, her translations include acclaimed titles such as the Aya series by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie, Hostage by Guy Delisle, and Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët.

With a background in art history and history, she also translates books and exhibitions for museums in North America and Europe.

She lives in Montreal.
