A Bump on the Road

Authored by Mr Hugh Vaughan

A Bump on the Road is a book of short stories emanating from the innocent years before secondary school, and the growing out of it. A Bump on the Road reflects an observant child in Ireland attempting to understand the world around him. Family - parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and the wider community: The Church, The Troubles, secrets, ghost stories, leaving home, myths and legends, all this comes under the microscope of a child growing up.

These stories are disguised memoirs - creative memoirs. Little nuggets of memories give birth to these flights of fancies. The reader is taken on a gamut of emotions in this rich and amusing journey of growing up in Ireland, brought evocatively to life by his wonderment of snow, holidays, playing, family, school, church and gradually moving away. Sorrow is never too far away.
