Patrick Hamilton

Consider me a convert, while it is early in the trilogy (p.80 of the 500+), Iam amazed by the pacing, the dialogue, the working class propriety, the fleeting affections of a would-be intellectual. How different from the brooding characters in John Cowper Powys!

It is shocking to think that of the three tomes rereleased by NYRB this trilogy is alleged to be comparitively inferior.

This has been the year, for me, of friends and strangers telling me that Patrick Hamilton will be worth my time. Later, it will probably be the year that I find out for myself.
