The award-winning Canadian cartoonist and animator Guy Delisle comes to Los Angeles for the launch of his highly anticipated, non-fiction new book: Hostage, that he will be presenting on May 19, at Skylight Books. Delisle will be discussing his latest novel with David L. Ulin, former book editor and critic at the LA Times, and writer of several bestselling novels. 

Hostage, reads as a non-fiction set in the Caucasus region in 1997. It narrates the true story of Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe Andre who was held captive for over three months and explores the question of the psychological effects of solitary confinment and of our strategies of survival in times of hardship. Compelling and captivating, it invites us to a dive into the darkest corners of the human psyche and to question what drives our will to survive in the toughest moments.


Originally from Québec City, Canada, Guy Delisle now lives in the South of France, and has become one of the leading creators of francophone comic novels. His works testify of his sense of movement and drawing, which he acquired through an initial ten-year long formation in the animation industry, and often focus on the topic of life and habits in faraway countries. Author of bestsellers such as Burma Chronicles, Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, Pyongyang, and Shenzhen, he was awarded the Prize for Best Album for the French edition of Jerusalem at the Angoulême International Comics Festival.
