Readers familiar with DeLisle's previous graphic dispatches from North Korea and China will be pleased to learn that he spent a much longer period in Burma, had much greater freedom of movement, and was buoyed by his new domestic role as a working-at-home father. What emerges from his stay is a longer, wider-ranging, but largely home-based travel journal. DeLisle candidly documents the stark political realities of life under the country's military regime, while still maintaining his trademark focus on the bemusing quotidian details of expatriate life.

Short 'skits' or annecdotes of Guy Delisle's time in Burma/Myanmar. Anyone who has ventured outside of the "first world" can sympathize. Laughed out loud on multiple occasions!
