More good news from France! I am enjoying the new surprises, knowing they will dwindle away. Except, except, 2500 or so copies of the Norton THE CONFIDENCE-MAN will be in the hands and minds of some of the brightest people in France.
The good news keeps rolling in. The program for the “internal” agrégation program has just come out. It’s a smaller program for people who already have teaching jobs but who want to move up in the hierarchy. And the program also includes The Confidence-Man. A lot of these candidates attempt both the “internal” and “external” agrégation examination, so it doesn’t add that many actual additional students (and sales), but it should add some.
THIS IS THE 2ND NORTON CRITICAL EDITION OF HERMAN MELVILLE'S THE CONFIDENCE-MAN (2006), EDITED BY HERSHEL PARKER AND MARK NIEMEYER.
