Albert Honig?s most constant companions have always been his bees. A never-married octogenarian, he makes a modest living as a beekeeper, as his father and his father?s father did before him. Deeply acquainted with the workings of his hives, Albert is less versed in the ways of people, especially his neighbour Claire, whose beauty and vivaciousness transformed his young life. Yet years passed by, feelings were repressed, and chances missed.
Until one day Albert, led by a trail of bees, discovers Claire?s body. Through the quiet minutiae of life, he begins to examine the truths that lay hidden under the secrets and silence that hovered between them for so long. With echoes of The Remains of the Day, Telling the Bees is a haunting novel about lies of omission and commission, the persistence of regret, and the sweet anguish of re-opening wounds in order to finally heal them.
Synopsis: Young Albert Honig spends much of his time in solitude, his daily routine shaped by the almost mystical attention he quietly lavishes on his bees. Into his tightly repressed existence bursts a brash young neighbour, whose vivacity and boldness begin to transform his life. Yet years pass by, feelings are repressed, opportunities missed. When, one balmy day, led by a trail of bees, Albert discovers her body, he is plunged back into his memories, and finally confronts the lies and secrets that led to their estrangement. In doing so he unearths the real truth of Claire's murder - a question not so much of who but why.
