Publication year

Here's the version of the abstract in English:

From the 1940s to the mid-1960s, Quebec witnessed a boom in series of popular novels published in instalments, written by local authors, and set in La Belle Province. Appearing under a multitude of pseudonyms, these books tell us a great deal about the workings of authorship in the reading of serialised publications. In its examination of the series “Roman d’amour” put out by Éditions Police-Journal, this article seeks to explore in a more specific way how the author’s name functions in relation to the reading contract established by the genre of the romance novel.
