As part of our 10 Essential Books series, Monique Polak introduced the French-speaking audience of Plus on est de fous, plus on lit to Fifth Business by Robertson Davies.
Here's what she says about why she chose this book:
"Fifth business" is a theatrical term used to describe the odd man out, a character who plays a small, but nonetheless useful role.
That's Dunstan Ramsay, a retired Ontario school teacher. This is a brilliant, often funny book about the human search for wholeness. The book reflects its author's fascination with Jungian psychology. It will take Dunstan nearly a lifetime to come to terms with his shadow
Listen to Monique explain why she thinks this is must-read book of CanLit. (In English)
