But his romantic vacillation between a British soldier and a Frenchnurse, exacerbated by a fetishistic obsession, may well bring about his downfall. In his quest forpower, King must gratify the expectations of his imperious Mother, the hawkish fantasies of awar-mongering Governor-General, and the utopian idealism of a Québécois mystic before facingone, final test of leadership. Culminating in an epic battle between good and evil, King learnsthat disappointment may be the defining characteristic of the twentieth century!
