Growing up can be both thrilling and treacherous in small-town Newfoundland, where a young person will experience the joys and struggles of life in ways that are unique to isolated, rural communities.

Bruce Stagg grew up in the 1950s and 1960s in Catalina, a rural fishing community on Newfoundland and Labrador’s Bonavista Peninsula—a time and place that inspired this collection of short stories.

Stagg effortlessly captures the spirit of post-Confederation Newfoundland. Life was arduous, but also romantic; families were optimistic, but struggled to put food on the table. These are stories of a childhood spent on the wharf, by the seaside, and in detention. Of larger-than-life personalities in a small but vibrant town. Of deep grudges and lifelong friendships.

With rich detail and remarkable characters, The Old Man Is Me is a delightful and insightful step back in time.
