Mr. Bedford and the Muses by Gail Godwin

Mr. Bedford and the MusesThis is a book of 6 short stories, and my review is of the excellent first one, titled “Mr. Bedford.” At 113 pages, regular type, it is a long ‘short story.’ I liked it because the author presented an in-depth and dryly humourous account of her stay in London with an eccentric couple, almost indescribable, walking the tightrope between truly concerned people and con-artists. It’s also her account of the personalities of the varied people they had as boarders. Altogether, a fun yet thought-provoking read, with wonderful insights into human character.
