A Life With Alexandra David-Néel: Book I
In 1959, the young Marie-Madeleine entered the service of a peculiar old woman whose strong character has overwhelmed her most dedicated previous employees. This uncharacteristic woman is none other than Alexandra David-Néel, an explorer, philosopher, writer, who was, in 1924, the first Western woman to enter Lhasa, the heart of Forbidden Tibet. In a seemingly frightful scrapyard where the memories of fourteen years spent in Asia are piled up, Marie-Madeleine finds herself plunged in the exceptional life of the famous adventurer, going from her conversion to Buddhism to her meeting with the Dalai Lama. Although the old woman is as unbearable as fascinating, a strong bond with the young employee will gradually develop...
Based on Marie-Madeleine Peyronnet's account 10 Years With Alexandra David-Néel, this work, written and illustrated by Frédéric Campoy and Mathieu Blanchot, is far more than an illustrated version of her book: it is ten years of collaboration and relationship between Alexandra and Marie-Madeleine that come to life before our eyes. The authors perfectly convey the characters and humor through exciting dialogues and vibrant graphics.
