Kabul Disco -Book 2: How I Did Not Become an Opium Addict in Afghanistan

Author : Nicolas Wild
pages: 176
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : HarperCollins

Book 2 of a brilliant series of graphic reportage.

The first instalment of Nicolas Wild s wry, perceptive graphic reportage from Kabul saw a carefree young comic-book writer land in a capital in crisis. Nicolas found himself gradually falling in love with Kabul, and decided to extend his contract with Zendagui in spite of the risks of living in Afghanistan.

Book 2 sees him returning from a holiday in France to resume work as an illustrator. Nicolas is assigned to the agency s new programme: an awareness campaign against opium. Wild draws a vivid portrait of a surreal situation: the farcical nature of the message, an election where no one votes and the yo-yo that is expat life in Kabul, swinging as it does between ever-present danger and casual festivities.

Irreverent and funny, Kabul Disco continues to monitor the Afghan crisis in Book 2, serving both as historical documentation and the memoir of a keen-eyed observer.



Author Bio: Born in 1977 in Alsace, Nicolas Wild is a former student of the renowned illustration workshops at the �cole Sup�rieure des Arts D�coratifs in Strasbourg. He lives in France and is the author of several graphic novels, including Le Voeu de Marc and Le Bourreau.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Wednesday 16 January, 2013.
