  • debut short story collection John s project is to track Lenin s journey in April 1917 from Switzerland to Leningrad Describing his plan McHugh explains the sealed carriage containing Lenin travelled through Germany Sweden Finland and across the Baltic Sea and I want to follow this exact path The entire journey which began with Lenin hearing in passing about the beginning of the revolution in Russia a moment itself worthy of a Monty Python sketch is bizarre surreal and rife with potential What fascinates me about travelling is the period before you arrive at your destination how all your thoughts are either lost in the past or drifting to the future In the midst of travelling the present is partially erased for the journey goer he says Maeve Binchy herself explored a form of this idea in The Lilac Bus where the journey to Rathdoon acts a mode of reflection The bus grants the characters sustained space to examine themselves whereas Rathdoon and Dublin act as present points of drama It is the quality of fluxion between past and future musing upon past decisions whilst racing towards future ones the present neither here nor there which Lenin s journey represents for me Inaugurated in 2014 the Maeve Binchy UCD Travel Award commemorates Maeve Binchy her love of travel and her world celebrated creative writing The Award worth 4 000 is open to a student undergraduate or postgraduate currently enrolled in UCD s College of Arts Celtic Studies The winner uses the Award to fund a travel opportunity that to enhance her his creative writing The winner was announced by award convenor Professor Margaret Kelleher Chair of Anglo Irish Literature and Drama along with Mr Gordon Snell husband of Maeve Binchy at Newman House Dublin The award judges are Niall McMonagle
