On the other hand, this is a story about alienation: alienation of labor from profit, alienation from family the throughline of the author's relationship with his dad who works as an engineer at the factory is quietly heartbreakingalienation from peers and toxic gender roles, and the structural alienation of good trade union jobs from a community. He also traces his relationship with his emotionally distant father who has a white collar job at the same factory. Delisle takes you inside the mill, showing how it runs and introducing you to the other men he worked with.
He does this amazing thing where he captures the most banal things and Chroniques de jeunesse them? He has a really concise drawing style that feels more like animation the way the story unfolds. Some people are happy with the same job forever. La chronique de Clara Dupont-Monod : "Chroniques de jeunesse" de Guy Delisle• Partly because of his education, partly because of his father works as an engineer upstairs in the same factory, away from the danger and paid a better salary.
What really struck me was that he he shows us things without explicitly telling us. As an artist who also came from a town with a papermill, I felt a kinship to the author and narrator. It's not just young Guy's age that makes young him stand out, but also his status as a temporary summer hire, the older labourers knowing he is an art student with aspirations in animation. The truth is, for many young artists Chroniques de jeunesse is their element.
Other, more senior workers assume young Guy to be a stuck-up, entitled kid. The author, Guy Delisle, worked in a pulp and paper factory for three summers until he managed to find work as a comic artist. While our mill wasn't steeped in as much history, I understood much of the lingo and layout he described.
The truth is, for many young artists estrangement is their element.
Factory Summers continues the comics about Delisle's own life by now focusing on his times working summers in a paper mill when he was younger.
