We are utterly delighted to have one of the masters of literary thrillers back to Elliott Bay for this visit. Dennis Lehane, recipient of several major awards, including Shamus and Edgar Awards, and author of such works as Mystic River and Shutter Island, is here tonight with his much-anticipated new novel, Since We Fell (Ecco). A woman at a certain point in life, some of it in retreat, but also engaged and with most aspects seeming fine enough, has a chance encounter that changes everything.
“Lehane has written two books - one, an insightful examination of the search for identity and belonging, and two, a thriller that constantly leaves you guessing-and then smashed them together into one terrific read.” — Gillian Flynn.
“One doesn’t ‘read’ Since We Fell so much as plunge and tumble through its pages like a raft in white water. A sweet bullet of a book.” — Richard Price.
