RARA-AVIS: Ellroy's new one: why France first?

From: William Denton ( buff@pobox.com)

Does anyone know why Ellroy's new book, which many of us have been waiting for for years, is coming out first in translation in France? It seems pretty strange. If the publishers were trying to get it out as soon as possible, which one would think they were, why wouldn't they publish it in English while the translator works? Translating an Ellroy toe-crusher must take quite a while.
