About the Book

Memories of growing up on the West Island of Montreal during the 1950s and early 60''s are the subject of this aptly entitled collection of fourteen short stories. Sometimes hopelessly conventional and sometimes strangely surprising, each story is a remembrance by a now middle aged man who realizes that his future may now reside mainly in his past. Whether looking back on his first girlfriend, some of his school day adventures, or his relationship with the Almighty, Parts of A Past is a whimsical retelling of events that most will recognize, if not revere as being similar to their own.

About the Author

With Parts of A Past being his second collection of short stories published over the past year, Mike Robertson continues to take steps to realize his live long ambition of being an author of fiction. Although still commercially unknown and certainly uncelebrated, Mr. Robertson  remains strangely optimistic about his future as a writer and has plans in mind for a novel. A haplessly middle class, middle aged Canadian, Mr. Robertson still fantasizes about living off Central Park in New York City and holding season tickets to Yankee Stadium.
