Peter Quinn is a Bronx-born and raised Irish American. He was a speechwriter for New York governors Mario Cuomo and Hugh Carey and, in recent years, has become a well-known essayist and novelist. He even has a new novel out, entitled The Man Who Never Returned, about the legendarily vanished New York judge Joseph Crater.
But that’s not all Quinn has. According to one observer, Quinn also has -- if you will -- the “quin”-tessential New York Irish accent.
