The New York Times Loves The Given Day!

There's a lovely review of Dennis Lehane's THE GIVEN DAY in The New York Times today!

Janet Maslin praises this "rich, intricate story" and a "wrenchingly suspenseful book," proclaiming that Lehane "has written a majestic, fiery epic that moves him far beyond the confines of the crime genre."

She concludes:
The searing precision with which the book describes this devastation is one of its great strengths. ("Blackened storefronts. Overturned carts and overturned cars, all burnt. Two halves of one skirt in the gutter, wet and covered in soot.") But that quiet horror, reminiscent as it is of the best of "Mystic River," is by no means this book's sole source of strength. "The Given Day" is a huge, impassioned, intensively researched book that brings history alive by grounding the present in the lessons of the past. When Mr. Lehane writes of "a man who wore his power like a white suit on a coal black night," he could be writing about a distant time -- or writing about his own.
Read the entire review here and get your copy of the book on Tuesday!

The Given Day Tops The Indie Next List

THE GIVEN DAY will be the #1 pick on the Indie Next List for October!

IndieBound, the organization of independent booksellers formerly known as Book Sense, puts out the list each month to highlight "great reads from booksellers you trust."

The featured bookseller from Howard's Bookstore in Bloomington, Indiana, recommends Dennis Lehane's novel, saying "Richly textured and filled with historical characters (from Babe Ruth and W.E.B. DuBois to a young and ambitious J. Edgar Hoover), The Given Day is arguably Lehane's best book yet."

We certainly agree!
