BREBNER, Winston. Doubting Thomas. New York / Toronto : Rinehart & Company,Inc., (1956). First American Edition. Pp (10),3-210,(6). 8vo, grey cloth, pink and blue lettering to spine. "The young author of this immensely touching novel has been courageous enough to deal with realities — the power of love and the meaning of truth. So skillful, intelligent, and imaginative ishis approach that the force and beauty of his concept make an almost magic al impact upon the reader. This is the story of a man in an unnamed city, holding down an unrewarding job in a wonderfully bureaucratic organization called simply The Agency, returning each evening to his dissatisfied and unsatisfying wife. His name is Thomas. There is, however, a sustaining force in Thomas's life: each year at Holiday time, he assumes his secret identity and becomes the most beloved man in the city. He is a clown —the distilled essence of all the great clowns the world has known. This marvelous creation, springing from Thomas's doubts about The Agency's infallibility, is a comic masterpiece. The effect on Thomas and everyone eJse in his life is ultimately stunning. To reveal the denouement would be unjust to the author, and to Thomas, for it would deprive the reader of the deep satisfaction to bedrawn from this brilliantly written, deceptively simple tale which bares t he deep-set core of man's essential humanity." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
