Quote du jour/Bill Richardson

From Bachelor Brothers’ Bed & Breakfast by Bill Richardson -

a chapter called Hector’s Favourite Authors for the Bath

Mavis Gallant
A bath should have something of the elegant about it, and I can think of no writing more stylish than that of the Montreal-born, Paris-based Mavis Gallant. As someone who has never lived elsewhere, I enjoy reading the works of a happy expatriate who feels the strong tug of home.

Mavis Gallant (1922-2014)
in Paris in 2006.
(Neville Elder/The Globe and Mail)

  1. A great loss. I am going to have to go on a Mavis Gallant binge.
