Hellfire And Herring is a vivid, powerful and moving account of Christopher Rush's upbringing in the 1940s and 1950s in St Monans, a small fishing village on the east coast of Scotland. In an evocation of a way of life now vanished, Rush weaves stories from the fabric of family life, village characters, church and school. He writes of folklore and fishing, the eternal power of the sea and the cycle of the seasons. He also reflects on the relationship with his parents, and the inescapability of childhood influences far on into adult life.show more
