One destiny, one pen. "Multiverse" - as Julia Kristeva says. A recognizable stranger, a close unknown woman, a calm rebel? In this book, for the first time, the distinguished French intellectual of Bulgarian origin shares her life, "traveling herself" through the vicissitudes of time.
I travel myself has the form of dialogue, stretches on the border between the biographical genre and the psychological research. The book tells about Julia's childhood in the communist Bulgaria, about education, exile, meetings, people she loves, marriage, her son David, work, multiple trips, China, books, Freudian psychoanalysis, feminism in the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir, poetry... And, of course, about teaching in France and her work as a visiting professor at a number of American universities. All this has led to many hardships, labor, pain.
