Description:

MEDITATIONS ON FATHERHOOD FROM THE AUTHOR OF JERUSALEM: CHRONICLES FROM THE HOLY CITYWith A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting, the dry humor that pervades Guy Delisle's landmark and praised graphic travelogues takes center stage. Quick, light vignettes play on the worries and cares any young parent might have, and offer wry solutions to the petty frustrations of being a dad who works from home. Readers familiar with Delisle's stranger-in-a-strange-land technique for storytelling (employed in Jerusalem, Pyongyang, Burma, and Shenzhen) will recognize the titular parent in this book; Delisle's travelogues were simultaneously portraits of complex places and times, and portraits of a stay-at-home dad's ever-changing relationship with his children while his wife is out working for Doctors Without Borders. The relationship between young child and all-too-irony-aware parent is beautifully done here, and Delisle's loose flowing style has been set free, creating a wonderful sense of motion throughout. A User's Guide is an intimate, offbeat look at the joys of parenting.Praise for Guy Delisle:"The bar is set extremely high when it comes to graphic books and the Middle EastOBut JerusalemO beats them all." - The Guardian"The cultural and physical barriers among the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities [Oof] Jerusalem O become the source of dark but gentle comedy: absurdity teetering on the edge of tragedy." - The New York Times
