“This is the kid who made my Mom and me laugh till our sides split with his outlandish, hand-written ‘Denis stories’ as a young kid,” writes Kathleen Hamill Fischetti, the only sister among six Hamill brothers.

So, what else could Denis do but continue to write stories. His novels celebrate New York, its eccentricities and its tough exterior along with the people who make it that way, many of whom would give you the shirts off their backs, while others were at the same time stealing those shirts.

For everyone who knows at least one New Yorker who could best be described as a “character”, Denis has created many more, and you’ll find them in his funny, sad, often outrageous, sometimes gruesome, other times seductive, novels of which there are now ten, and counting.

"When you follow the career of Denis Hamill in his journalism and novels, you see the development of a powerful talent. But this (Fork in the Road) is a big surprise. I expected another tough thriller. I expected another tour through the underbelly of New York. I didn’t expect a love story, and I didn’t expect to be left wide-eyed at Denis Hamill’s grasp of backstreet Dublin street talk. As far as I know, this is the first time an American writer has dared grapple with an Irish inner city. No one has done it better.”
-- Frank McCourt, author of Angela’s Ashes and ‘Tis

Born in Brooklyn
