The authoritative edition of Melville's last novel

Jim Lewis - Conjunctions

I love the book, more than Moby-Dick, more than any native novel I can think of. Melville is the muse of my America, and The Confidence-Man is my vade mecum. I've read it over and over, and sometimes tried to imitate it. And yet. . . . Is there a more lighthearted and amusing tale that's meaner and more misanthropic?
