‘The Fishing Cats of Fort d’Auvergne (and Other Stories)’ is a collection of recollections told from a boy’s perspective, growing up in a busy seaside holiday hotel in Jersey during the fifties and sixties.
From the hotel's fishing cats to celebrity guests, these ‘snapshots in time’ add up to an intriguing glimpse into life in a gentler era long gone.
The narrative derives its content and flavour from the adjacent marine environment with its pristine beaches and huge tidal range, from the historic surroundings and colourful characters.
These brief glimpses, presented as bite size chapters encapsulate the relevant years into an entertaining and nostalgic read.
