    • found: An interview with Ananda Devi by her translator Jeffrey Zuckerman, August 16, 2016, via French Embassy in the United States website, viewed May 26, 2017(I was born and lived in Mauritius until I was 18, after which I spent six years in London, studying social anthropology. Immediately afterwards, I went to Congo-Brazzaville, where my husband was working for the World Health Organization. I spent more or less seven years there, with frequent stays in Mauritius, especially when my second son was born. We moved to the French-Swiss border in 1989 and have been there since. So Ferney-Voltaire, the small town in which I have lived since 1989, is home as in the place where I can put my suitcases down and take in the familiar and unique scents that are the imprint of one's deep-seated presence.)
