The Guardian wrote ‘he can barely write a shopping list without Hollywood optioning it.’ From working-class Boston, Lehane has achieved high literary acclaim with his New York Times bestsellers, his New York Times bestsellers include Gone, Baby, Gone, Mystic River, Shutter Island, and The Drop – all made into award-winning movies.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Tom Hardy lined up to star in his adaptations. To add to his too-cool-for-school status, he was a staff writer on the acclaimed HBO series, The Wire. His latest, Since We Fell, is considered one of his best, a novel of profound psychological insight. Before becoming a full-time writer, Lehane worked as a counsellor with mentally handicapped and abused children, waited tables, parked cars, drove limos, worked in bookstores and loaded tractor-trailers. Mystic River prompted Elmore Leonard to declare: ‘Boy does he know how to write’ and Michael Connolly dubbed him the ‘heir apparent’.
Don’t miss your chance to get an insight into one of the most electrifying writers of the genre.
