Publisher Comments:

Samantha and George are about to launch into a sabbatical year in the quaint Mexican town of Oaxaca. For Samantha, the trip is a reconnection to her past and an opportunity to complete her novel; for George, it is an unsettling step into the unknown. As the couple depart for Oaxaca, a monarch butterfly begins its annual migration south from Canada to Mexico. The story of its remarkable journey, woven into the fabric of Ruins, draws striking parallels with the challenges faced by Samantha and George as they adapt to their new surroundings. Beneath its picturesque veneerandmdash;the 16th-century architecture, the nearby ruinsandmdash;Oaxaca is a town shaken by political unrest. Samantha and George find themselves embroiled in events that will alter their paths forever. Ruins masterfully captures the shadows and light of a troubled country steeped in history and culture, weaving together personal, political, and natural dramas into a thrilling portrait of life south of the Rio Grande.

Synopsis:

Shenzhen is entertainingly compact with Guy Delisles observations of life in urban southern China, sealed off from the rest of the country by electric fences and armed guards. With a dry wit and a clean line, Delisle makes the most of his time spent in Asia overseeing outsourced production for a French animation company. He brings to life the quick pace of Shenzhens crowded streets. By translating his fish-out-of-water experiences into accessible graphic novels, Delisle skillfully notes the differences between Western and Eastern cultures, while also conveying his compassion for the simple freedoms that escape his colleagues in the Communist state.
