I enjoy Dennis Lehane's writing, so it was fun to "meet" him in person. He was entertaining but didn't provide any great insights. He writes popular stuff but he's a really good writer so it would have been nice to hear more about his craft. The interviewer after his talk was silly and boring, but the main event was his talk. City Arts and Lectures tickets are normally expensive so it was great to have the Goldstar discount.
Quotes & Highlights
“Moonlight Mile is] startlingly original … Instantly cinematic … This is a deft, suspenseful thriller that unfolds with increasing urgency until it delivers a visceral shock in its final moments. When it comes to keeping readers exactly where he wants them, Mr. Lehane offers a bravura demonstration of how it’s done.” —The New York Times
Dennis Lehane was born and raised in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Before becoming a full-time writer, he worked as a counselor with mentally handicapped and abused children, waited tables, parked cars, drove limos, worked in bookstores, and loaded tractor-trailers. His one regret is that no one ever gave him a chance to tend bar. Lehane and his wife, Angie, divide their time between Boston and the Gulf Coast of Florida.
