Summary
In the middle of the night in 1997, Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe Andre was kidnapped by armed men and taken away to an unknown destination in the Caucasus region. For three months, Andre was kept handcuffed in solitary confinement, with little to survive on and almost no contact with the outside world. Here, cartoonist Guy Delisle recounts Andre's harrowing experience in Hostage, a book that attests to the power of one man's determination in the face of a hopeless situation. Delisle tells the story through the perspective of Andre, who strives to keep his mind alert as desperation starts to set in. Thoughtful, intense, and moving, Hostage takes a profound look at what drives our will to survive in the darkest of moments
