Author(s): Guy Delisle
Shenzhen is a cold, urban city in southern China that is sealed off with electric fences and armed guards from the rest of the country. This novel talks about it.
From the critically acclaimed author of Pyongyang, Shenzhen is another masterful graphic novel that will appeal to fans of Marjane Satrapi and Joe Sacco.
