By Gabrielle Wittkop

«Mes carnets d’Asie ne sont rien que des notes personnelles, impressions griffonnées sur mes genoux, au bord d’une rizière ou dans un bus de fer-blanc, couvrant des pages et des pages barbouillées de sueur ou étoilées de pourpre par un moustique gorgé mais vaincu.»

En revisitant ses souvenirs rapportés de Thaïlande et d’Insulinde, Gabrielle Wittkop a élaboré – avant sa disparition – ce parcours idéal où le temps s’incline devant une région à los angeles richesse infinie. Carnets d’Asie oscille entre le magazine de voyage et l’intime expérience extrême-orientale : chaque récit nous plonge avec une sensibilité exacerbée dans des cultures, des épopées mythiques, des instants de vie uniques.
