Tintin in the New World
In the queerly beautiful “Tintin in the New World” Frederic Tuten…shows that by tapping the energy of Herge’s archetypes he has, surprisingly, been able to make a statement more personal than autobiography.
—The New York Times
A wildly inventive allegorical fantasy, Tintin in the New World is a serious novel hiding behind a comic-book conceit, which is also extremely funny.
—Jonathan Coe for London Review of Books
Frederic Tuten is a magician….I love the way the novel deepens as it goes, the music of its sadness, and the inventive humor. Its wisdom and its art moved me very much.
It’s a masterpiece. The prose is exquisite. The diction is perfect. It is just the novel to be in the vanguard of 21st century fiction.
