Lost Dumas novel hits French bookshelves
From the AFP:
A previously unknown novel by the author of "The Three Musketeers", Alexandre Dumas -- a 1,000-page adventure story about the start of the Napoleonic empire -- hit French bookstores.
"Le Chevalier de Sainte-Hermine" (The Knight of Sainte-Hermine) first appeared in serial form in a French newspaper and lacked just a few chapters when Dumas died in 1870.
Claude Schopp, the Dumas expert who found the book at France's National Library, has added a short section to bring the tale to its conclusion.
The novel completes a trilogy of works set in the aftermath of the French revolution, which begins with "Les Compagnons de Jehu" -- written in 1857 -- and continues with "Les Blancs et Les Bleus," completed in 1867.
