9782914563567: The Man Who Refused to Die (Illustrated Fairy Tales for Adults)

Is death necessarily inevitable? The Man Who Refused to Die is the improbable tale of an intransigent character, heroic in his defiance, who refuses to cast aside mortal existence without knowing why he cannot prolong it indefinitely--who refuses to die just because the rest of humanity has thus far failed to avoid such a fate. The Belgian-born, French-based writer and comic-book critic Nicolas Ancion (author of L'homme qui valait 35 milliards) and the artist and illustrator Patrice Killofer (Futuropolis, Psikopat, 676 Apparitions of Killofer) draw on the researches of the molecular geneticist François Taddei for this latest installment in Dis Voir's new series of "illustrated fairy tales for adults," which asks "How do literature and science contaminate one another?"--seeking to mobilize scientific research to provoke dreams and meditations on the laws of the universe.
