 ABOUT THE TITLE
It was Larry who discovered that Quasimodo was a musical pigeon. Not only did he like music but he actually seemed to recognize two different varieties the waltz and the military march. For ordinary music he would waddle as close to the gramophone as possible and sit there with pouting chest eyes half-closed purring softly to himself. But if the tune was a waltz he would move round and round the machine bowing twisting and cooing tremulously. For a march on the other hand - Sousa for preference - he drew himself up to his full height inflated his chest and stamped up and down the room while his coo became so rich and throaty that he seemed in danger of strangling himself. He never attempted to perform these actions for any other kind of music except for marches and waltzes. Occasionally however if he had not heard any music for some time he would (in his enthusiasm at hearing the gramophone) do a march for a waltz or vice versa but he invariably stopped and corrected himself half-way through.

One sad day we found on waking Quasimodo that he had duped us all for there among the cushions lay a glossy white egg. He never quite recovered from this. He became embittered sullen and started to peck irritably if you attempted to pick him up. Then he laid another egg and his nature changed completely. He or rather she became wilder and wilder treating us as though we were her worst enemies slinking up to the kitchen door for food as if she feared for her life. Not even the gramophone would tempt her back into the house. The last time I saw her she was sitting in an olive-tree cooing in the most pretentious and coy manner while further along the branch a large and very masculine-looking pigeon twisted and cooed in a perfect ecstasy of admiration.

For some time the Rose-beetle Man would turn up at the villa fairly regularly with some new addition to my menagerie: a frog perhaps or a sparrow with a broken leg. One afternoon Mother and I in a fit of extravagant sentimentalism bought up his entire stock of rose-beetles and when he had left let them all go in the garden. For days the villa was full of rose-beetles crawling on the beds lurking in the bathroom banging against the lights at night and falling like emeralds into our laps.

The last time I saw the Rose-beetle Man was one evening when I was sitting on a hill-top overlooking the road. He had obviously been to some fiesta and had been plied with much wine for he swayed to and fro across the road piping a melancholy tune on his flute. I shouted a greeting and he waved extravagantly without looking back. As he rounded the corner he was silhouetted for a moment against the pale lavender evening sky. I could see his battered hat with the fluttering feathers the bulging pockets of his coat the bamboo cages full of sleepy pigeons on his back and above his head circly drowsily round and round I could see the dim specks that were the rose-beetles. Then he rounded the curve of the road and there was only the pale sky with a new moon floating in it like a silver feather and the soft twittering of his flute dying away in the dusk.
