Hailed by the Washington Post Book World as "a modern classic," Robertson Davies’s acclaimed Deptford Trilogy is a glittering, fantastical, cunningly contrived series of novels, around which a mysterious death is woven. The Manticore—the second book in the series after Fifth Business—follows David Staunton, a man pleased with his success but haunted by his relationship with his larger-than-life father. As he seeks help through therapy, he encounters a wonderful cast of characters who help connect him to his past and the death of his father.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:18:30 -0400)
Luring the reader down labyrinthine tunnels of myth, history and magic, 'The Deptford Trilogy' provides an exhilarating antidote to a world from where 'the fear and dread and splendour of wonder have been banished'.
