For this compendium volume Robertson Davies has selected from his friend's writings to give us a feast of anecdote and opinion, liberally spiced with scorn, spleen, irony and wit. Here is Marchbank's on railway dining, on spy scares, on hay fever, on honesty, Beethoven and Christmas cards. "Mr. Davies should be cherished. He is one of the wittiest and certainly one of the most ambitious novelists we have." - Books and Bookmen
