"It’s insightful and is able to carry the weight of Burma’s troublesome history, enabling the reader to learn about the real lives of Burmese people, through a mix of current affairs and, surprisingly considering the subject, humour." (Emma Henderson Independent)
"Simply put, Burma Chronicles is the most enlightening and insightful book on Burma in years... If you must visit Burma while it remains under the rule of the iniquitous junta, do so with the express intention of bearing witness to the tragedy and suffering of its people. Better still, stay away, and visit it instead through the pages of this heartbreaking, educational and insightful comic masterpiece" (Guardian)
"As a counterpoint to the often inaccessible news stories about the country, this is an excellent portrait of a little-understood land, and makes for a deeply original and fascinating piece of travel writing" (Daily Telegraph)
"Hilarious and touching" (Dazed)
"This book is more fun than most holidays and more enlightening than a hundred blogs by self-appointed experience censors" (Time Out)
From the critically acclaimed author of Pyongyang and Shenzen, Burma Chronicles is a masterful graphic novel, and a timely and incisive portrait of a country on the tipping point.See all Product description

the only drawback is it feels very episodic. I have not read any other Delisle, and this could be his style of writing. but at times it brings a sort of disconnect unlike Maus, which builds tension and hooks you to read more.
