Joe Sacco, author of "Palestine," has taken his sketchbook and sympathy to Chechnya to record the plight of war refugees there. With an ear for people's testimony and an eye for the details of their daily existence, he draws a harrowing picture of their situation.

His work will be included as part of a new book by actress Mia Kirshner entitled "I Live Here," due out later this month, about the world's dispossessed. New York magazine has a slideshow of Sacco excerpts.

Thanks to Journalista! for the tip.
