The Confidence-Man

His Masquerade

Publisher: New Canadian Library
A Canterbury Tales for pre-Civil War America.
On April Fool’s Day the titular Confidence-Man stows away aboard a steamboat, where he tests the motley group of passengers, forcing them to wrestle with their own confidence and where they place their trust. Melville weaves their stories together into an amazing satirical tapestry that crosses genres and styles. It was his final novel, and one of his most challenging.
