Review: The Mill for Grinding Old People Young by Glenn Patterson

Glenn Patterson takes his influences and inspiration from his home place. He is not alone in that: it is the source of authenticity for writers.

But Patterson's latest novel, The Mill for Grinding Old People Young, lacks the universality to make it appeal widely. It reads like a historical chronicle of Belfast over 30 years, colourful yes, but without insights into the characters who people the pages.
