Described as social satire, Shaun Tan’s new book, Tales from Outer Suburbia, will be in the library soon (reserve your copy now!). A mixture of stories (in Shaun Tan’s surreal style), full-page and comic-style illustrations (some in sepia shades reminiscent of those in The Arrival), it looks quirky, accomplished and Shaun Tan-ish. Good, in other words.
