When carefree writer Nicolas Wild arrived in Kabul in 2005 his first mission was to write a comic book explaining the Afghan constitution to children. His second was to work on a recruitment campaign for the Afghan army. Wild became a privileged observer of the slow reconstruction of Afghanistan and gradually fell in love with the country he captures in this ironic yet affectionate book of graphic reportage.
