Reading having obtained the regional Viva Leonardo label, and supported by the Association Les Amis de Michèle Desbordes
Organized and proposed by the media library Aimé Césaire d’Amboise
Michèle Desbordes’ novel begins with Leonardo da Vinci’s arrival in Amboise. The King of France provided him with a residence, the Clos Lucé, and a servant. Well beyond the historical novel, the book takes us through the master’s last years through this singular encounter with this servant. In this book everything is overwhelming: the story, the characters, the writing of Michèle Desbordes.
