The Book of 1000 Beautiful Things and Other Favourites
The Book of 1000 Beautiful Things and Other Favourites is another feast of nostalgia, observation, humour and not a little paths from award-winning author Hugh Robinson. From the back streets of Belfast in the hungry thirties to the vast sweep of todays rural Russia, discovering the Golden Valley or hob-nobbing with legendary American singing star Frankie Laine, Hugh writes from the heart, and with compassion.
Hugh doesn’t apologise for the fact he writes for and about the common man – ‘his own people’ and in this superb volume he introduces you to another delightful selection of characters you’ll immediately recognize – street urchins, farmers, tramps, out of luck bachelors, tough old school and kind Russian citizens with whom Hugh lived in their native land.
As a writer Hugh believes what comes from the heart will go to the heart. The Book of 1000 Beautiful Things is destined to do just that
