Robertson Davies
" For some time I have been struggling to do a film treatment of FIFTH
BUSINESS, which Norman Jewison asked me for.... I am getting nowhere. I have no luck reshaping something I have written as a novel into another form."

ROBERTSON DAVIES, March 11, 1992, From a letter to Elliot Hayes., p.267 in FOR YOUR EYE ALONE
