This review is from: Fifth Business (Paperback)
In this mature and subtle book, Davies sets out to expore the crisis that takes grip when one must justify a life lived. But like the plot itself, the reader is left with perhaps more questions than anwers. Why do we value acheivement more than deapth of spirit? Is the life of one dragged by events any less valuable that that of the successful showman, businessman or politician? Isn't success just an illusion that covers the emptiness of spirit that is its inevitable companion?
Along the way, the reader meets colorful characters - priests and sinners - the enliven the story.
A book that is therapy bound by leather.
