American writer, the author of "Stubborn Child: A Memoir." His story is not just an American tragedy but a universal one. Beaten by his dad as a little kid, by age seven he was institutionalized as a "stubborn child." When his mom first had him committed it was under an old statute that has since been taken off the law books. Incorrigible, he lied and stole, spending half his life in and out of various juvenile lockups and detention houses, bewildered and confused as to why he was a "bad boy."
A precious child, he had large, dark and questioning eyes, dark hair and full lips. He grew into a handsome man, still questioning and remembering a childhood where wonder and delight were turned into a bleak and foreign environment filled with brutal and unjust hostilities. His reaction was bewilderment and shame and his sole defense was detachment.
Devlin fathered two children; at the time of the book publication he was not in a committed relationship.
