“The waiting of this leopard is an antidote to modern epilepsy”. This is how Sylvain Tesson describes the experience that led him to write The Snow Leopard, winner of the Renaudot Prize in 2019. Accompanying photographer Vincent Munier on the Tibetan plateau in search of the last snow leopards, Tesson recounts this adventure in a hostile but grandiose place. It is also a pretext for him to recount the waiting and the search for the simplest of beauties; the one offered by uninhabited immensity and wildlife; the one that reminds man of his duty towards wildlife and natural resources; the one that allows humans to discover their enormous and absurd power of predation.
