Dennis Lehane: Author of ‘Mystic River’ Has A Great New Read [Interview]

Dennis Lehane is a force to be reckoned with. His bestselling novels include Gone, Baby Gone; Mystic River; Shutter Island; The Given Day; and Moonlight Mile. Big-screen adaptations have been helmed by Ben Affleck, Clint Eastwood, and Martin Scorsese.

Called “as much social historian as mystery writer,” by The Chicago Tribune, Lehane once again showcased his ability to create suspenseful historical fiction with last year’s bestseller LIVE BY NIGHT, his first stand-alone novel in four years.

Now available for the first time in paperback, LIVE BY NIGHT, is a Prohibition-era tale that catapults readers between 1920’s Boston and Florida, introducing a cast of hard-living gangsters, petty criminals, and two unforgettable dames.

Deemed a “ripping, movie-ready yarn” by Entertainment Weekly, LIVE BY NIGHT is already set to hit Hollywood in an adaptation to be written and directed by Ben Affleck, who gained high acclaim for his adaptation of Lehane’s Gone, Baby, Gone in 2007.
