The Beekeeper

Young, impressionable, twenty-year-old Walter Taylor flees his suburban home in search of freedom and adventure and stumbles into more than he bargained for. Set in a chaotic bee-farm at the height of the 1960s, home to a bohemian, European-born artist and his mistresses, The Beekeeper is filled with allusion, irony, and high humour, yet sets in stark relief the fund of violence and ignorance that underlay the romantic dreams of the 1960s.


Henderson has written a hilarious satirical portrait of the last generation’s counter-culture movement, as well as an original and thought-provoking assessment that what produced this rebellion was to a large measure, transplanted European ideas originating not only in the last century but beyond.


Critical Comment

“Amusing ... sketches of some eccentric ’60s intellectuals as they lounge in the Ontario countryside.... The characters are beautifully realized.... Henderson is hilarious when he’s mocking the cerebral pretensions of the bohemian set.”

— Books in Canada

“A roisterous jaunt through male envy.... ”

— The Edmonton Journal

“Fast-paced and well written...[with many] interesting observations about the effect decadent European sensibilities had on the Canadian artistic landscape of the era.”

— The Globe and Mail


Author Keith Henderson

Author Biography

Keith Henderson has published two other novels, (The Restoration, DC Books 1994 and The Roof Walkers, DC Books 2013), a collection of political essays from when he was Quebec columnist for the Financial Post (Staying Canadian, DC Books, 1997), as well as a prize-winning book of short stories (The Pagan Nuptials of Julia, DC Books 2006). He led a small provincial political party in Quebec during the separatist referendum of 1995 and championed English language rights and the “poison pill” strategy of partitioning Quebec if ever Quebec partitioned Canada, positions covered in full length articles in the Los Angeles and New York Times as well as on CBS 60 Minutes.
