Roy Lichtenstein’s Portrait of Snowy

This was the cover art for “Tintin in the new World” by Frederic Tuten.

But carping is absurd when dealing with a novel so richly inventive and so subtly textured. Who can resist a text that interpolates Snowy’s thoughts and canine romances into the running narrative, that drops certain corny paragraphs into quotation marks in order to suggest their bogus novelistic tone, but that somehow remains — dare I say it? — sincere?
