    This first novel in The Deptford Trilogy introduces Ramsay, a man who returns from World War I decorated with the Victoria Cross but who is destined to be caught in a no man's land where memory, history, and myth collide. As we hear Ramsey tell his story, we begin to realize that, from childhood, he has influenced those around him in a perhaps mystical, perhaps pernicious way.

    Perfect story

    Perfect story beautifully narrated with great tone. Slow build of plot well crafted and written well

    Hailed by the Washington Post Book World as a modern classic, Robertson Davies' acclaimed Deptford Trilogy is a glittering, fantastical, cunningly contrived series of novels, around which a mysterious death is woven. World of Wonders, the third book in the series after The Manticore, follows the story of Magnus Eisengrim - the most illustrious magician of his age - who is spirited away from his home by a member of a traveling sideshow, the Wanless World of Wonders.

    Wonderful

    I read the Deptford Trilogy 35 years ago and remembered enjoying it but little else. Have just finished listening to the final book World of Wonders ..Show More »
