Given Day "As Good As It Gets"

Dennis Lehane’s forthcoming novel, THE GIVEN DAY, received two starred reviews this week!

Booklist says:

Lehane masterfully blends his stories of human tragedy and hope with the larger cultural and political conflict in which the action unfolds, and while the comparisons to contemporary life are unavoidable, they arise on their own, without authorial intervention. Like E. L. Doctorow in Ragtime, Lehane captures the sense of a country coming of age, vividly dramatizing how the conflicting emotions and tortured dreams that drive individual human lives also send a nation roiling forward.

Library Journal chimes in with a statement that we wholeheartedly agree with: “Lehane’s long-awaited eighth novel is as good as it gets. Enthusiastically recommended for all fiction collections.”
