Book review: the speckled people

Warm review of the autobiography (The Speckled People) of Irish writer Hugo Hamilton, who grew up out-of-place in a trilingual family in the 50s and 60s.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
