9780312171834: Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast

A pair of endearingly eccentric bachelors--in their fifties, and fraternal twins--own and operate a bed & breakfast establishment where people like them, the "gentle and bookish and ever so slightly confused," can feel at home. Hector and Virgil think of their B&B as a refuge, a retreat, a haven, where folks may bring their own books or peruse the brothers' own substantial library. An antic blend of homespun and intellectual humor, Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast is a place readers will want to return to again and again.

Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast, originally published by Douglas & McIntyre, won Canada's prestigious Stephen Lecock Award for Humour in 1994, and was published in hardcover by A Wyatt Book for St. Martin's Press in 1996. Its sequel, Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast Pillow Book, is a Canadian bestseller, and will be published in hardcover by A Wyatt Book in October 1997.

Review:

"One day, I put myself in the car and simply drove. I had no idea where I was going or why. I had no idea ... I would wind up, at dusk, in a lost little valley, turning up the driveway of the Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast."

The best books, as you read them, take you from wherever you are to a place where you want to be. If you're a reader of a certain type--a lover of books, cats, and absurdity of a quiet kind--then the Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast should be on your itinerary. It introduces two fraternal twins, Hector and Virgil, unmarried men who run a cozy establishment on a Canadian island. The book alternates between notes from Hector or Virgil, and "Brief Lives," culled from the B & B's guest book. This variety of perspectives gives Bill Richardson tremendous flexibility, and he weaves all the disparate characters together with an unobtrusive dexterity. The Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast is a pleasant, soothing, quietly absurd place to be.

From the Back Cover:

Settle in for an amusing visit with Hector and Virgil, the twin hosts of a rustic retreat, and their clientele of bookish and perhaps slightly confused storytellers. No one will forget the romantic (;even shocking); story of how the brothers were conceived, nor their motley inheritance -- a big house on a small island, a huge library, an aged, cussing parrot, and a dozen musical eggcups. The winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, Bachelor Brothers' Bed &; Breakfast is narrated by the man who knows the place best: writer, broadcaster, and raconteur Bill Richardson. He first entertained listeners about the goings-on of Hector and Virgil on CBC Radio. Then he transformed his sketches into an international best-seller, and now they tickle the ear again.
