One of the greatest art theft stories of the 20th century: André Malraux, French novelist, art theorist, and eventually France’s Minister of Cultural Affairs, and his wife, Clara, traveled to Cambodia in 1923, planning to steal and smuggle artifacts out of the country and sell them in America. The Cambodian treasure hunt promised to be a mix of cultural sleuthing for important antiquities and risk-taking on the fuzzy edge of the laws that governed historical sites. The jungle expedition ended in arrest and, for André, trial and conviction. But it also led to a second Asian venture: the launching of a Saigon newspaper, L’Indochine, dedicated to the aspirations of the indigenous population. Madsen follows the couple from this fateful adventure that so shaped their future to the end of their marriage, and after.

»Ein Meisterwerk des investigativen Journalismus. Ein kluges, fesselndes Buch!« The Guardian Timbuktu ist ein Mythos – einst so reich, dass angeblich sogar die Sklaven Goldschmuck trugen, verfügt die abgelegene Stadt am Niger über einen ganz besonderen Schatz: eine der größten Bibliotheken mittelalterlicher Schriften. Als im Jahr 2012 die Stadt in die Hände von Islamisten fällt, droht die Vernichtung der Bücher. Doch eine Gruppe von Bibliothekaren und Archivaren schmuggelt die Bücher unter Lebensgefahr aus der Stadt. Eine große, meisterhafte Reportage über Menschen, die sich mutig der Vernichtung eines Wissensschatzes und Erbes der Menschheit entgegenstellen – und eine Zeitreise zu einer sagenumwobenen Stadt.
