Author(s): Jean-Pierre Weill
The Well of Being is an enchanting illustrated enquiry into the pursuit of happiness, and what it means to be radically alive in our daily moments. A pictorial narrative, it tells the story of a man as he searches for the well-being he longs for and dimly remembers yet no longer believes in. Weill peers into the depths of the human experience and the meaning of existence and concludes with a unique retelling of the puzzle we call growing up, offering a refreshing, simple and empowering way to rethink it.
