Alain Quella-Villéger is one of the great specialists on the life and work of the writer and traveler Pierre Loti. To mark the 100th anniversary of his death, together with his brother Didier Quella-Guyot and the cartoonist Pascal Regnauld, he publishes a comic strip that traces his travels to all corners of the world.
This year, on June 10th, we celebrate the hundredth anniversary of his death. Pierre Loti traveled the world all his life. A naval officer who through his missions, his loved ones, his drawings and of course his writings – be they his reports or his novels – shared his passion for discovery and cultural differences with his readers, often worrying about, sometimes outraged by, the standardization of the world the violence of men.
In the footsteps and in the wake of this amazing traveler, our three guests take us today through an exciting comic album that takes us from Easter Island to Japan, from Egypt in the Basque Country to India, Tahiti, Constantinople or Senegal.
