Mais, en plein jour, combien elles ont perdu de leur pouvoir effarant! Que viens-tu faire chez nous? Loti, whose real name was Julien Viaud, was a full-time professional naval officer and was able to realize his childhood dream of going to Angkor in when his ship stayed some time in Indochinese waters.
Though the time he spent at Angkor was brief, he writes captivatingly about the glory of the temples and their magnificent reliefs hidden in the jungle.

He was also able to visit a royal mausoleum built by King Norodom, and describes a reception given for him at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh on his return journey to Saigon. The last chapter rounds up everything very nicely, in it the old Pierre Lotti returns to the house were he spend his youth. There again he finds his childhood dreams and looks back on a life well-traveled, older, wise and perhaps a little sadder. A translation into Dutch appeared for the first time in with black and white photos and illustration by Chris van Geel.
