Poetic Tale Sure To Be Classic

The Miami Herald    |    Richard Pachter    |    November 6, 2011

Gregory Gallant sounds like a saccharine radio character from the ’40s, but it’s the real name behind the nom de plume of acclaimed artist Seth. Here, he weaves fact and fantasy into an essentially plotless tour of a mythical Canadian cartoon museum and hall of fame. Being a Yank, I’m not familiar with most of the cultural references and in-jokes, but even an outsider can appreciate Seth’s deft commentaries and asides. It’s a fun diversion though one hopes that online annotation appears soon to deepen the enjoyment and appreciation of this neat and fun little book.
