"Author of the critically acclaimed Tintin and the World of Hergé and the last person to interview Remi, Benoit Peeters tells the complete story behind Hergé's origins and shows how and why the nom de plume grew into a larger-than-Remi personality as Tintin's popularity exploded. Drawing on interviews and using recently uncovered primary sources for the first time, Peeters reveals Remi as a neurotic man who sought to escape the troubles of his past by allowing Hergé's identity to subsume his own. As Tintin adventured, Hergé lived out a romanticized version of life for Remi."--Jacket.

Tim und Struppi, Clawdia Chauchat, Settembrini, Mynheer Peeperkorn, Naphta, alle zusammen in einem Hotel in den peruanischen Anden – geht das überhaupt? Der amerikanische Autor Frederic Tuten beweist, daß es geht. In diesem verrückten Abenteuerroman spannt Tuten zwei der berühmtesten Comicfiguren mit einigen der prominentesten Personen der modernen Weltliteratur zusammen. Besonders hübsch die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Madame Chauchat und dem immer noch nicht recht erwachsenen Tim. Sie verführt ihn nach allen Regeln der Kunst einer erfahrenen Frau – und Tim wird endlich ein Mann. Dieser lyrische Abenteuerroman ist natürlich ein ausgewachsener Literaturscherz für Kenner. Indes ist Tuten kreativer Künstler genug, um eine durchaus einleuchtende Geschichte zu erzählen. Auch wer keinerlei Kenntnis von Tintin oder vom ›Zauberberg‹ hat, kommt hier auf seine Kosten.
