Pete Hamill

This event occurs in the past, May 19 2011
Porter Square Shopping Center, 25 White St, Cambridge, MA   (view map)

Novelist, journalist, and screenwriter PETE HAMILL has penned more than 20 novels, among them the excellent 1994 memoir A Drinking Life (Back Bay Books), which chronicled his coming of age in a hard-drinking, working-class neighborhood and family, and the ravaging — and ultimately redemptive — effect of the drink on his life. He stops by Porter Square Books to discuss his latest fictional effort, Tabloid City, a thoughtful thriller that paints the insular worlds of print journalism and Manhattan with Hamill’s unflinchingly honest and perceptive narrative brush.
