The story begins with author Paul Tagney recounting his earliest years in Bristol, England, a brief torrid equatorial experience, and finally, immigration by ship to Canada in 1953. Numerous challenges and adaptations spring from this major uprooting. With an interesting and descriptive literary voice, the author provides us with a record of life, growing up in the fifties and sixties, initially in rural Alberta, followed by later childhood and adolescent experiences in a small town on the Ottawa River, west of Montreal.
Then comes life in Montreal during the sixties, with all its social, cultural, and musical revolutions. As Paul’s story goes along life’s road, he fills it with many unique, clearly creative descriptions of nature, during all seasons. Challenges such as a negative father-son relationship, are more than balanced by bonding with a best friend's family, time and escapades with other friends, and young early-parenthood.
“Buckle up and take a wild ride through the 50s and 60s! Paul Tagney’s new e-book, Family and Love, gives an unflinchingly honest and gritty account of growing up in Canada as a baby boomer. And this baby boomer did not have an easy childhood. Running throughout the story is the motif of Paul trying to come to terms with the negative impact of his father. He searches for meaningful connection through each of these early stages with little success. But this search is truly fascinating, at times disturbing and sometimes downright harsh. Written when he was 24 years old, Paul manages to capture vividly the voice of each stage in his early wounded life -the young boy, the awkward adolescent, the rebellious teenager and finally the young and confused adult. In staccato-like paragraphs he recounts a huge variety of experiences such as the often harsh and insensitive treatment of his father, his awe at the many beauties of the Canadian landscape, nasty attacks of boyhood bullies, his many sexual experiences, and his profound love for his newborn son. Family and Love is an intensely personal portrait of one young man’s attempt to find redemption and it’s one helluva read.” – Richard Zajchowski, Instructor, Camosun College, Victoria, B.C., Canada
