About this title

Synopsis:

Robertson Davies, one of North America's most beloved and critically acclaimed novelists, added an impeccable sense of style to all his diverse writings. Now, in this exciting publishing event, there is further cause for celebration with the publication of his selected letters. This volume for the first time gathers together previously unpublished letters that Davies wrote while at the height of his illustrious career.In these lively and provocative letters readers will find affectionate letters to his daughter, witty barbs to hostile critics, as well as amusing and profound observations on the creative life. Correspondence with famous figures like Sir John Gielgud and Margaret Atwood offers fascinating pieces of gossip: "... and Salvador Dali, at the next table, raised his eyebrows and popped his eyes to such a degree that I feared they might leave their moorings and bounce about the floor".Poignant, sometimes devilish, and always entertaining, these wonderful letters give a rarely seen portrait of the private Davies.

About the Author:

In addition to writing twelve novels, several volumes of essays, and a handful of plays, Robertson Davies (1913-1995) was an actor with the Old Vic Company in England, publisher of the Peterborough Ontario Examiner, and professor and first master of Masey College at the University of Toronto. He was the first Canadian to be inducted into the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.
