Bestselling philosophy book is reimagined for the first time as a graphic novel

One day, young Sophie finds a letter addressed to her that contains only one question: “Who are you?” Then there’s another one asking, “Where does the world come from?” The sender of these letters remains a mystery, but the questions intrigue Sophie. This is the beginning of a strange correspondence that will lead the young girl on a coming-of-age quest to meet major figures of philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Descartes, Hegel, Sartre, etc.). In the first volume, Sophie begins by questioning the philosophers of Antiquity and goes all the way to those of the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods. This is the first of two volumes. In the second volume, she discovers metaphysical doubt while continuing on her way to modern times. This comic book adaptation of Jostein Gaarder’s original book breathes new life into a cult classic.
