The Guardian previews Hostage

“The 20 comics to watch out for in 2017” / The Guardian / Zainab Akhtar / January 5, 2017

Renowned for his journalistic travel memoirs, Delisle turns to biography in this recounting of Christophe André’s life. A Doctors Without Borders administrator who was taken hostage in 1997 for three months, André was kept handcuffed in solitary confinement, with little to survive on and almost no contact with the outside world. Hostage explores the psychological effects of solitary confinement, the repercussions of negotiating with kidnappers and the nature of freedom.
