Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praised by The New York Times, Brill's Contentand Publishers Weekly, Safe Area Gorazdeis the long-awaited and highly sought after 240-page look at war in the former Yugoslavia. Sacco (the critically-acclaimed author of Palestine) spent five months in Bosnia in 1996, immersing himself in the human side of life during wartime, researching stories that are rarely found in conventional news coverage. The book focuses on the Muslim-held enclave of Gorazde, which was besieged by Bosnian Serbs during the war. Sacco lived for a month in Gorazde, entering before the Muslims trapped inside had access to the outside world, electricity or running water. Safe Area Gorazdeis Sacco's magnum opus and with it he is poised too become one of America's most noted journalists. The book features an introduction by Christopher Hitchens,political columnist for The Nationand Vanity Fair.

Sacco’s detailed, personal reporting captures his subject matter more convincingly than photographs or Christiane Amanpour.Harrowing and bleakly humorous, Sacco’s account of life during the Balkan conflict is a timeless portrait of ordinary people caught in desperate circumstances. It’s also a work of genius in an unlikely genre: journalism in comic book form.[Demonstrates] how brilliantly comics can serve as reportage.

Synopsis:

In the wake of his acclaimed , Joe Sacco spent four months in Bosnia in 1995-1996, immersing himself in the human side of life during wartime, researching stories rarely found in conventional news coverage. The book focuses on the Muslim enclave of Gorazde, which was besieged by Bosnian Serbs during the war; Sacco spent four weeks in Gorazde, entering before the Muslims trapped inside had access to the outside world, electricity or running water. Released in 2000, confirmed Sacco as one of the preeminent journalists of his time, and earned him a 2001 Guggenheim Fellowship. Now for its 10th anniversary, Fantagraphics is releasing an expanded hardcover edition which, much like 2007's , supplements the original work with page after page of related drawings, on-site sketches, photographs, and transcripts from Sacco's notes.
