Hugo Hamilton (born Johannes Ó hUrmoltaigh, 1953) is an Irish writer. Hamilton's mother was a German Roman Catholic who travelled to Ireland in 1949 on a pilgrimage, married an Irishman, and settled in the country. His father was a strict nationalist who insisted that his children should speak only German or Irish, but not English, a prohibition the young Hugo resisted inwardly.

Hugo Hamilton's new novel Disguise is far too low-key to be termed a tragedy, but it does explore the consequences of the roles adults make their children fit, and how those rules can define a life in unexpected ways. Disguise is of that peculiar literary genre which features a great many exciting touchstones-war, Nazis, torture, betrayal, jazz music-but no actual direct excitement. Which isn't a bad thing, exactly; Hamilton achieves a soothing, elegiac tone that fits the introspective struggles of his central character, treating the horrors of history with a respect that doesn't bog the narrative down in misery. The problem comes when the novel reaches its close, and it becomes clear that the various incidents are never going to build to any cohesive finish.
