  • Book

Dispatched to the North Korean capital to supervise cheap-labor animators, artist Guy Delisle recounts his incredible two-month stay in the notorious Hermit Kingdom. From the local ”French toast” (bread dipped in milk, then microwaved) to the criminally opulent International Friendship Exhibition (a half-million-square-foot repository of gifts to ”The Eternal President”), he cloaks Pyongyang with a compassionate cynicism that cushions the bleak horrors of this totalitarian Lost in Translation.
