A Man Alone in a Comic Book

Guy Delisle’s new book, Hostage, is his first nonfiction graphic narrative in which he is not a character. Christophe André’s first-person voice, matched to Delisle’s drawings tells the story of André’s nearly four months as a hostage after being abducted while on his very first mission as an administrator for Doctors Without Borders. He begins in the past tense but soon switches to the present, narrating day by day the moments and events that structure his experience.
