Emmanuel Carrère in Milan in 2015.

French Emmanuel Carrère is used to breaking the mold.

And that is precisely what he did with “Yoga”, his latest book, which since it was published in September last year has become a bestseller.

After “The kingdom” (2014) -in which he talks about the origins of Christianity and his very brief experience as a believer-, Carrère returns to the fore with a work that, as expected from the title, talks about that activity so fashionable in our times and that he has practiced for more than 30 years, but also in a dark and depressing stage of his life.

Initially, her ambition was to write a “subtle, smiling little book” that could serve many yoga lovers.
