The Deptford Trilogy
Fifth Business; The Manticore; World of Wonders
Around a mysterious death is woven a glittering, fantastical, cunningly contrived trilogy of novels: ‘Fifth Business’, often described as Robertson Davies’ finest novel; ‘The Manticore’, and ‘World of Wonders’.
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’.
‘His books will be recognized with the very best works of this century’ The New York Times Book Review.
