Hergé s Tintin adventures have been read by tens of millions and translated into more than fifty languages. In Tintin and the Secret of Literature, novelist Tom McCarthy, acclaimed author of Remainder, asks a beguilingly simple question: are they literature? In conversation with art critic Marcus Verhagen, McCarthy discusses the themes and patterns in both Hergé s work and that of writers, artists and thinkers from Plato to Derrida, Balzac to Freud - and suggests that Tintin s ultimate secret may well be that of literature itself.
