Hostage / Poppies of Iraq

D+Q presents excerpts from two contemporary french language masterpieces, debuting in English in 2017. Guy Delisle's Hostage recounts the harrowing experience of a kidnapped man held in solitary confinement in the Caucasus region, while Poppies of Iraq is Brigitte Findakly's nuanced account of her relationship with her homeland Iraq, stretching from her childhood during Saddam Hussein's regime to the 2015 Paris attacks, as drawn by master cartoonist Lewis Trondheim.
