Hergé was one of the greatest artist of the Twentieth Century, but while he is celebrated for his artistic achievements, many people forget that he was equally talented with words.
Using as his source material a rich assortment of transcribed interviews and Hergé’s own correspondence, the author reveals rare pearls, anthologies, amusing notes and scathing letters, in which the creator of Tintin expresses himself openly and honestly. While the transformation of Georges Remi into Hergé happened almost overnight, it took Hergé a lot longer to learn how to return to simply being Georges.
The pages that follow reveal both men to be neither angels nor devils through a rich tapestry of reflections and thoughts revealing gentle humour, seriousness, tenderness, love and friendship.
