Stacey Abrams on Robertson Davies

Stacey Abrams, talking about books with The New York Times:

What’s your favorite book no one else has heard of?

What’s Bred in the Bone, by Robertson Davies, is a novel about a man whose life contained much more than the surface would suggest, including espionage and angels. Davies was a distinguished Canadian author, and this is Book 2 of his Cornish Trilogy (The Rebel Angels and The Lyre of Orpheus are first and third). I usually recommend the book to folks who ask me for a good book list. Rarely has anyone heard of him or the novel, which is a shame.
