A Life With Alexandra David-Néel

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.

A Life With Alexandra David-Néel, Book II: Orientalist, opera singer, journalist, writer, explorer, Buddhist… Alexandra David-Néel has lived a thousand lives!

A true hymn to adventure and non-conformism…
