Reviews of High Spirits: A Collection of Ghost Stories (1982)

Review by mojosmom (2004-07-28)
Every story in this book is a joy. Davies spoofs himself, as, in his persona as Master of Massey College of the University of Toronto, he narrates them. It seems that there is something about Massey College that is attractive to ghosts, famous, infamous and not famous at all.

"Every part of our great University strives for distinction of one kind or another, but it is everywhere admitted that in the regularity and variety of our ghostly visitations Massey College stands alone."

Even Little Lord Fauntleroy puts in an appearance! Splendid stuff.
