H. Ross Irvine

Author H. Ross Irvineabout this book: Fragments is a collection of eight short stories - really short stories - that represent random slices of a life in the mid to late twentieth century. The stories are excerpts from a life lived from childhood until death and recount simple fragments of memory that are held onto and that in some way mark and define the life. Often the memories mark major events that would be noted as significant in anyone's life but sometimes they are only tiny slices of experience, minor conversations and passing moments of little note at the time but which stay locked inside, marking a history, expressing character and determining the arc of a life.

It must also be said that there has been an attempt to make Fragments a good read. The stories are all short and direct and; hopefully, they are sometimes surprising. The kind of thing that can easily be consumed in a few minutes but which make an impression and stay with the reader for a while.
