And Then My Mum Took Me To Hospital
by Kevin Murray
Sydney 'Baby Boomer' Kevin Murray relates stories from his early years, and is struck by the number of them that seem to end with the painfully revealing phrase '...and then my mum took me to hospital'.
However, not all of the stories in this book concern physical injury. Many of them provide a glimpse into an era when life was simpler and childhood more carefree and adventurous. Many of them are told with a humour and poignancy that can only come with the perspective of time. Many of them mark significant milestones on the often tortuous path to adulthood and responsibility.
All of the stories are told in an entertaining style that will sometimes have you wondering how Kevin actually survived to write them, and may even have you recognising aspects of your own life.
