Definitely in my Top 2 books ever,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Cornish Trilogy (The Rebel Angels, What's Bred in the Bone, and, The Lyre of Orpheus): What's Bred in the Bone, The Rebel Angels, The Lyre of Orpheus (Paperback)
Francis Cornish is a mysterious millionaire spy, art-collector, forger and academic around whose life this trilogy is woven. Although the context of the novels is academic, it's a very funny, intrigue-filled and fascinating book. After putting down this trilogy (which was difficult, in spite of its bulk)I felt more informed and entertained than I would have thought possible. The characters are all beautifully drawn, almost Dickensian in their richness. I love it. Who's got my copy?

May I ask what the other book could possible be? From your top 2? I'm always on the lookout for a recommendation, and being a devotee of Robertson Davies gives your opinion considerable weight in my eyes!
