"First good biography" to come...

A Belgian newspaper has just reported on...

"(...) the first good biography of Herge. Pierre Assouline spent only one afternoon with Fanny, and Benoît Peeters didn't have the opportunity to interview her. With Philippe Godin however she speaks at length about the 26 years' time she spent with Herge. No better witness available. This book makes up for a big gap and is much expected by the fans."

(translation of 5th paragraph of a paper legible on http://www.dhnet.be/dhculture/article.phtml?id=129219 )

Sounds interesting ! I remember this was mentioned a while back, cited as the reason why there won't be a Chronologie this year. It better had be an amazing biography if it means the next volume of the Chronologie series has to be postponed for it ...
