Lettres kazakhes is a short illustrated novel. Written by young ladies, these letters are all sented to Guillaume, a young Frenchman back in France after a long stay in Kazakhstan.
Through the humor, the hopes, the feelings delicately sprinkled throughout these letters and drawings, is outlined a rich, differentiating and subtle picture of a very rarely known country.
