The Globe and Mail lists Hostage as Best Books of 2017

“The Globe and Mail” / Hostage / November 24, 2017

Hostage, by Guy Delisle, translated by Helge Dascher (Drawn & Quarterly) – In detailing a Médecins sans frontières staffer's captivity in the Caucasus, Delisle dwells expansively on what keeps us human, even in the most straitened of circumstances. This claustrophobic portrayal of a man confined to a room for months on end is also, paradoxically, a riveting action comic.
