Reviews

"There are few coming-of-age stories with so many highs and lows as Hamill's, and he makes such a roller-coaster irresistible reading. Filthy Beasts reminds us how hard it is to let go of your family, especially your mother, no matter how they betray or disappoint us." --Amy Sutherland
"Kirkland Hamill's memoir is brilliantly, sharply and unsettlingly new. Reading Filthy Beasts reminded me of inhaling Sedaris for the first time--that humor, that voice--only the work is tenderer and friendlier, an invitation not just to laugh and marvel but to truly understand." --Beth Macy
"A complex and unflinching account of a family's undoing told with style and a mordant humor that will keep you reading until the final page. I closed the book not in awe of Hamill's talent (although I am), but rather of the mere fact that he survived." --Steven Rowley
