Deux Amis

In yesterday’s FB comments Jan Sniderman mentioned she liked the name of the tiny bayou island where Chet and Bernie find some clues in The Sound and the Furry. Which, by the way, is on sale (the digital version) for $1.99 for this entire month! Perhaps a cheap way to introduce someone to the Chet and Bernie series? Just a thought. But back to the point—although I’ve discussed character names here with various Ms. and Mrs. Publicists I’ve never gotten into place names. Some of the place names in the series are real—Arizona, for example. But some are made up, and when you make things up, as with the character names, you can sometimes light a little afterglow. The name of the tiny island (perhaps seen in the middle distance on the book jacket) is Isle des Deux Amis. For those unfamiliar with French it means Island of Two Friends.

  1. Greetings!

    I always love reading these little gems of information about character names, and now the places in the C&B books. Very cool!

    Good evening to all!

  2. I knew that.

    But to me, (if that is the implication) Bernie and Chet are more than friends. They go beyond buddies or partners. They are much closer than that. I’m not sure either would say family but that is what they are. Closer maybe, as some family aren’t that close (or we wish they weren’t.)

  3. I’m back from Mexico, and missing it already. Hate facing the piled up mail, laundry, etc. but Jilly was overjoyed to have us back, doing zoomies and granting rare kisses. Made the return worthwhile!
