We’re delighted to welcome back one of the most popular, acclaimed novelists at work today, Dennis Lehane. He is here with a much-awaited, historically-set new work, World Gone By (HarperCollins). “A multilayered, morally ambiguous novel of family, blood, and betrayal. Working against a backdrop of World War II, Lehane continues and perhaps concludes the ambitious series of historical novels that began with the epic sweep of The Given Day and continued with Live By Night … [the novel’s] cumulative power and whip-crack narrative propulsion will enrich the reader’s apprecation past the last page. On one level, a very moving meditation on fathers and sons; on another, an illumination of character and fate.”- Kirkus Reviews. Dennis Lehane’s many other books include Mystic River, Moonlight Mile, and Gone, Baby, Gone. This should be fun.
