    "Unusual Plot Continues Series"

    This was the second in Robertson Davies' Deptford Trilogy. I loved the first book, and probably finished this only because the first was so enjoyable.

    This book was almost entirely about a psychoanalyst's work with one patient over the course of a year. This made for an unusual plot; and it makes me wonder what the third book could possibly be about.
