For its part, Lux, one of Serge Bouchard’s publishing houses, talks about
phenomenal explosion in sales.
We sold as many Remarkable Forgotten, Volume 1: They Made America and of Remarkable forgotten, volume 2: they ran America [coécrits par Serge Bouchard et Marie-Christine Lévesque] in a weekend than we usually sell in a year, explained, by email, Mark Fortier, editor for Lux.
