Southwest Award for Deja Vu


By Audry L. Lynch

I couldn’t believe my good luck when I found myself listening to Ron Hughart at the recent Los Angeles Festival of Books who was describing his and his parent's life as California migrants in the 1930s, 40s & 50s. “My book, The Place Beyond the Dust Bowl describes what happened after the Joads left”, he says.

With this year’s celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Steinbeck’s classic, The Grapes of Wrath, Hughart can testify to Steinbeck’s accuracy from his own life experiences. When did he read the book? “I was twenty years old serving as a soldier in Germany” Hughart recalls: “The first thing I thought to myself was that this man had gone out and gotten the real story. I lived it so I think my life personalizes his story. My book takes up where Steinbeck left off. In fact I thought about Rose of Sharon the whole time I was writing it”.

Deja Vu Cover




Déjà vu can be scary, fun, humbling, overwhelming and confusing, or perhaps a combination of some or all the above. This déjà vu began over twenty-five years ago for Award-winning Author Ron Hughart at a small restaurant in Placerville, California, and still has him baffled.
