I've never seen the X-Files. That didin't stop me from enoying these memoirs. Mr. Davis has been active in the theatre and in teaching actors for many years and his history of Canada's theatre scene (and England's, too) was interesting and gave me a deeper appreciation of this part of Canada's history.

And even though I've never seen the X-Files, I had heard of the "cigarette smoking man" -- my stepdaughters were big fans.

So, fan or not, if you are interested in the theatre, you will enjoy this book. ( )

Quotations
Am I being remiss here? I am assuming you know what the X-Files was. But it's possible you are reading this memoir for the arcane details of early Canadian theatre in the forties an fifties and you have never actually heard of the X-Files.
