LAST lost no more

 

last-cavalier.gifFinally! Seems like I’ve been waiting 125 years for the latest book from…Alexandre Dumas? Aptly titled, The Last Cavalier was originally published in serial form but lost until a scholar discovered a portion of it in the National Library in Paris and set out to piece it together. Publishers Weekly reports that the French edition released to critical acclaim; reviewers say it’s as good as The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. Pegasus Books, a publishing newcomer, will release the U.S. edition next month.

Does anyone still read this stuff? It’s been a long time since I read a classic adventure, but I sure loved The Prisoner of Zenda and The Scarlet Pimpernel.

  1. 137 years later, the man is published. For the hundredth plus time. It’s enough to make any writer cheer and cry all at the same time.

    And I’m so reading this one. Even if it was primarily ghostwritten by Monsieur Alexandre Dumas’s personal scholar. Bless him.

  2. Yeah, I need to get me one of those personal scholars too. SOMEBODY has to write my novel!
