Two brothers, buried in treasures and trash, end up dying in the once-elegant 4-story Harlem mansion. Told simply by the younger, blind brother, Homer, this tale is based on the true story of the Collyer brothers whose hoarding generates their descent into despair. Paranoia overwhelms Langley, who loves his brother but has lost any resemblance to common sense. Heart-ripping sentiment surfaces in the reader for these two very strange men, who actually had money to live in style. Overcome by possessions, unable to remember lives with function and purpose, Homer and Langley charm the reader amidst the quagmire of their home!
