“The Manticore is a charming journey of a middle-aged lawyer into his own psyche.”
The Manticore is a fascinating exploration, by an exquisite stylist, of those regions beyond reason where monsters live. David Staunton, the son of Percy Boyd Staunton, travels to Switzerland. Traumatized by his father’s death and plagued by a lifetime of unhappiness, David undergoes Jungian analysis and repeatedly encounters a manticore – a monster with the head of a man, the body of a lion, and the tail of a scorpion.
The Manticore is the second novel in the critically acclaimed Deptford Trilogy, which also Fifth Business and World of Wonders.
“He is to say the least a mature and wise writer”.
