Product description

Review

“Delisle, a former animator, has a knack for visual shorthand ... and for drawing environments: religious shrines and settlements, but also grocery stores, playgrounds and checkpoints -- lots of checkpoints. The cultural and physical barriers among the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities in and around Jerusalem, and the compromises and work-arounds the city's residents have been forced to devise, become the source of dark but gentle comedy: absurdity teetering on the edge of tragedy.” ―Douglas Wolk, The New York Times

“[Jerusalem] is a small miracle: concise, even-handed, highly particular.” ―Rachel Cooke, The Guardian

“The tone of [Jerusalem] is by turns gently humorous and dumbfounded. His drawing style... suits his brisk, snapshot approach.” ―Financial Times

“Neither Jewish nor Arab, Delisle explores Jerusalem and is able to observe this strange world with candidness and humor...But most of all, those stories convey what life in East Jerusalem is about for an expatriate.” ―Haaretz

“Engaging...[ Delisle] highlights the very complex lives of Israelis, Palestinians, and foreign residents.” ―Publishers Weekly Starred Review
