Xlibris Corporation, Sep 15, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 109 pages

This nostalgic essay interweaves commentaries on Hergs Tintin series with reminiscences of a life that has been strongly influenced by the intrepid hero and his adventures. As a child, Alain Bernard Marchand was transported in his imagination to the ends of the earth with Tintin, learning about the world but, more importantly, about himself. As an adult, he brought his childhood imaginings to life, through his travels around the world, particularly to Asia, and in the process, discovered the desire to create worlds of his own through his writing.
