Leading violinist's novel spelling

The first novel by Emerson String Quartet violinist Eugene Drucker is published in July. The subject is a German violinist who is forced to play, against his will, for prisoners at a concentration camp. The title is The Savior, and that spelling will pose a few problems in England. Which reminds me of this early post on the path.

We ain't French here in the US of A! We spell "color," "honor," "favor," etc., in the manner of Ovid and Cicero.

Quite so Alex. But it has also been said that one of the ten good reasons to be American is that you can spell colour wrong and get away with it

Shouldn't that be "wrongue"?
