    Canadian Gothic The Uses of IllusionIf the first part of the Deptford Trilogy, Fifth Business, explores the bare facts of rural Canada on the turn to acivilized and ethnicly diverse culture and if the second part, The Manticore, suggests the fundamental ideas that shape these facts then this third part, World of Wonders, provides the parallel universe of feeling that is the substrate of both facts and ideas World of Wonders retells the previous stories, filling in the missing material Canadian Gothic The Uses of IllusionIf the first part of the Deptford Trilogy, Fifth Business, explores the bare facts of rural Canada on the turn to acivilized and ethnicly diverse culture and if the second part, The Manticore, suggests the fundamental ideas that shape thes...

    Yay, Ramsay is back Not that David Staunton was a terrible narrator, but I will always, always have a soft spot in my heart for that irascible old teacher, descended from Scots and obsessed with saints And now here he is, back to narrating the book Sort of.Although Ramsay is technically the narrator, he is consigned to the frame story, and Magnus Eisengrim or Paul Dempster, back when he was from Deptford takes centre stage World of Wonders is notable if only for the fact that most of the p Yay, Ramsay is back Not that David Staunton was a terrible narrator, but I will always, always have a soft spot in my heart for that irascible old teacher, descended from Scots and obsessed with saints And now here he is, back to narrating the book Sort of.Although Ramsay is technically the narrator, he is consigned to the frame story, and Magnus Eisengrim or Paul Dempster, back when he was from Deptford takes centre stage World of Wonders is notable if only for the fact that most of the paragraphs begin with an opening quotation mark, as the majority of the story gets retold via dialogue almost a monologue, in fact, though there are crucial points where the listeners to Eisengrim s tale interrupt and interject.The book takes its title from the carnival that abducted Paul on that fateful day back in Deptford This event, combined with the interest in prestidigitation that the young Ramsay had awakened, would set Paul on ...

    World of Wonders is the least captivating of the Deptford Trilogy, but the work as a whole starting with Fifth Business is certainly one of the best I ve ever read The books examine the lives and thoughts of three men who are all linked to one another Davies structure and storytelling are extraordinarily polished and fine.I can t recommend anythingheartily than ...
