In the middle of the night in 1997, Doctors Without Borders administrator Christophe André was kidnapped by armed men and taken away to an unknown destination in the Caucasus region. For three months, André was kept handcuffed in solitary confinement, with little to survive on and almost no contact with the outside world. Close to 20 years later, award-winning cartoonist Guy Delisle recounts André's harrowing experience in Hostage, a book that attests to the power of one man's determination in the face of a hopeless situation.
