Safe Area Gorazde (New Printing) by Joe Sacco

Safe Area Gorazde (New Printing)
By Joe Sacco

Praised by The New York Times, Brill's Content and Publisher's Weekly, Safe Area Gorazde is the long-awaited and highly sought after 240-page look at war in the former Yugoslavia. Sacco (the critically-acclaimed author of Palestine) spent five months in Bosnia in 1996, immersing himself in the human side of life during wartime, researching stories that are rarely found in conventional news coverage. The book focuses on the Muslim-held enclave of Gorazde, which was besieged by Bosnian Serbs during the war. Sacco lived for a month in Gorazde, entering before the Muslims trapped inside had access to the outside world, electricity or running water. Safe Area Gorazde is Sacco's magnum opus and with it he is poised too become one of America's most noted journalists. The book features an introduction by Christopher Hitchens, political columnist for The Nation and Vanity Fair.

The new Seventh softcover printing (2008) features an all-new cover design by Adam Grano.

Sacco interview with LA Weekly
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Joe Sacco 17 Jan 2008 8:01 AM

LA Weekly has a nice Joe Sacco interview/feature up, written by our pal Scott Thill. Worth a read. Oddly, it's one of the few interviews with Joe that I've read where he is asked about Bush's foreign policy in the middle east, and needless to say, he's not happy. Sacco for President!

Sacco interview
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Joe Sacco 24 Dec 2007 8:36 AM
"I also think a comic, because of repeated images, can create an atmosphere of a place. There are certain things going on in the background that you don't have to mention over and over again. If you're writing about how much graffiti was on the wall in prose, you write it once, you don't write it every paragraph. Whereas in comics, it can be in the background on every panel so it sort of sinks into the reader's consciousness."

Here's a short but sweet interview with Joe Sacco conducted by Chris Mautner.
