At the start of Kirkland Hamill’s memoir I anticipated a familiar glance into the world of East Coast wealth and privilege.  What I discovered instead was a riches to rags journey into the heart and mind of a young man coming to terms with his own identity while at the same time holding it all together for himself and his brothers in the center of his mother’s unraveling.  Written with wit, humor, clarity and shameless self reflection, Filthy Beasts stayed with me for days after I put it down.
