The Given Day Hits Bestseller Lists Across The Nation!

It’s #7 on the San Francisco Chronicle’s list, #6 on the Washington Post’s list, #2 at the Denver Post…and #1 over at the Boston Globe!

The praise also continues to pour in from around the country.
The Chicago Tribune says the “prologue is as fine a piece of writing as you are liable to come across this year, or maybe the next several, and it is also a great curtain-raiser for the latest work from a writer who is becoming, book by book, the foremost chronicler of social class in America.”
The Oregonian says, “Dennis Lehane’s ‘The Given Day’ is a terrific book, a historical novel that covers events both well-known (the Boston police strike of 1919, the sale of Babe Ruth from the Red Sox to the Yankees) and long-forgotten (the molasses explosion that killed 21 people in Boston, the early career of J. Edgar Hoover).”
Finally, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette calls the novel “a triumph of the fictional imagination.”
