Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3458
sagacity, Lethean, ostensible, perspicacious

Despite its Lethean title, Turgid Johnson's Zerbit Award-winning novel Of Death and Forgetfulness is ostensibly a perspicacious portrayal of a precocious printing press proprietor's perilous preoccupation with pecan pies and pregnant porcupines; but a careful between-the-lines reading reveals another tale, concealed within the first by means of a sort of intertwining code: a story of sagacious sanitation supervisor Sigerson Schroeder's spendthrift son Sammy's secondary school studies suddenly slipping, signifying (sadly) a slide into sudden sorrow and suffering for Sammy S. Schroeder.
