Forever by Pete Hamill

christian kennedy, January 13, 2010

Never have I been picked up, engulfed and transported through an adventure such as this. From the moment I read the opening lines on the first page, "There he is, three days after his fifth birthday, standing barefoot upon wet summer grass. He is staring at the house where he lives: the great good Irish place of whitewashed walls, long and low, with a dark slate room glistening in the morning drizzle." I knew I was in for a journey from which I would not rush to return. Pete Hamill is a well consumed writer of epic proportion and style, a masterpiece storyteller...he guides you through countries, cities, eras and the lives of his characters themselves in a way that will leave you warmly satisfied and then quickly thirsting for more. I swear, if you were at a wake and Mr. Hamill was to attend he could breathe life back into the corpse itself and start it dancing. Truly, who needs to go to the movies when you can slip away and escape into a moving portrait of words such as this?
