    2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
    Brothers Langley and Homer Collyer are born in New York, their home a mansion, their future rosy. But soon Homer begins to lose his sight and Langley returns from the War in Europe with his lungs seared by gas. With the death of their parents in the influenza epidemic of 1918, they seem ill-equipped to deal with the new era. Carriages give way to motor cars, Prohibition to free love, but Homer and Langley adapt: their townhouse fills and empties and fills again, with servants, lodgers, tea-dancers and gangsters. As the world becomes incomprehensible, Homer and Langley hold fast to their principles of selfreliance, courage, kindness and love
