Authors on Stage - Dennis Lehane

In Live by Night, Lehane returns to the gritty climate of Prohibition-era America that made one of his earlier novels, The Given Day (2009) such a blockbuster success. Blending edge-of-your-seat suspense with vivid period detail, award-winning author Dennis Lehane has created a masterful epic of this pivotal period in American history, told in the voice of a dangerous – yet charismatic – young gangster rising in power during the glamour and violence of the Roaring Twenties.
