I hope never to read the book in which that happened and so I'll ask again: Was McPaul a full-on circus performer or more of a carny/associate? Thanks in advance for any response.
Carny/associate. The actual performers are all face-dancers. But McPaul (liking that a lot, by the way!
) learned everything he knew about influencing crowds from the Jongleur master, Rheinvar the Magnificunt.
You know, 'cause it had nothing to do with the BG & Mentat training he received from Jessica & Thufir.
