Partly graphic travelogue, partly misadventures & partly Kafka-like life for him & the NGOs his wife & her peers experienced with Army Junta who have game of Thrones behind the scenes.

Gives you a glimpse of what it would be like to visit myanmar without having to actually go there. Great fun learning, while you laugh at the adventures of
a new dad.

An interesting idea, but started feeling very cumbersome after awhile.

Enjoyable episodic stories of a cartoonist househusband and young father in Burma/Myanmar.

Must read. Gr8 humor and expression through sketching. Couldn't keep off without completing.

Vivid experiences, bringing a true emotional load of the moment and situation. I love Delsile's books! I wish there would be more in English.

The story of an artist spending a year in Burma, looking after his young son while his wife works with m├ędecins sans frontiers.
His interactions with the locals & officials is a great insight into the culture of Burma at the time.

Readers familiar with DeLisle's previous graphic dispatches from North Korea and China will be pleased to learn that he spent a much longer period in Burma, had much greater freedom of movement, and was buoyed by his new domestic role as a working-at-home father. What emerges from his stay is a longer, wider-ranging, but largely home-based travel journal. DeLisle candidly documents the stark political realities of life under the country's military regime, while still maintaining his trademark focus on the bemusing quotidian details of expatriate life.

I loved the blend of honest personal reportage and sharp political observations.

Never been to Burma, but believe I can trust Delisle's view as very real.

This author's travelogues are all worthy reads. Certain events described in the book have stuck with me long after my read.
