Book 6A: Fifth Business by Roberston Davies

Fifth Business by Robertson Davies is part of The Deptford Trilogy and is part of the first series that I am reading for this project.  I contemplated waiting until I read all three books, but I do not trust that I will remember the first book as clearly as do now, after just finishing it. […]
