About Me

My photo
Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

A Killing for Christ

Hamill, of Irish descent, received numerous awards, has traveled extensively, lives in New York City.

If you enjoy a novel written partly in the present, partly in the past, you'll like this.

 If you enjoy a novel with historic backgrounds, this really is for you.

 If you enjoy a novel with religions, politics, a hint of ribaldry and more, this is the  one.

 If you enjoy a novel of epic proportions, suspended belief and magic adventures,    this it it for you!

Have I caught your interest? Are you perchance lusting for more details?
Sorry, I am not going to write a brief on it - you'll  just have to read it for yourself!

If you have read "Angela's Ashes" by Frank McCourt
you may be interested to know that Pete Hamill was one author whose works inspired McCourt.
