Van Gogh's Bad Cafe
A Love StoryBook - 1997
Vincent van Gogh created his life's work out of a vortex of passion and delirium so intense his paintings seem to burst off the canvas. Now Frederick Tuten, the highly acclaimed author of Tintin in the New World, has imagined the personification of van Gogh's fervor and madness: Ursula, one of the most beguiling creations in recent literature. A morphine-addicted, nineteen-year-old photographer, Ursula is van Gogh's lover and tormentor. But she is lost to him, and he to her, when she stepsthrough a crack in the wall at the Bad Cafe and finds herself in a strange world - New York City at the end of the twentieth century.
