"Gut-wrenching. . . . A majestic, fiery epic. The Given Dayis a huge, impassioned, intensively researched book that brings history alive."—New York Times
Now available with a contemporary look, a beautifully written novel of American history, set at the end of the Great War; an unflinching, utterly spectacular family epic that captures the political unrest of a nation dangling between a well-patterned past and an unpredictable future from acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane
Dennis Lehane's beautifully written novel tells the story of two families—one black, one white—swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries and anarchists, immigrants and ward bosses, Brahmins and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power at the end of World War I. Coursing through the pivotal events of a turbulent epoch, it explores the crippling violence and irrepressible exuberance of a country at war with, and in the thrall of, itself.
Dennis Lehane is the author of thirteen novels—including the New York Times bestsellers Live by Night; Moonlight Mile; Gone, Baby, Gone; Mystic River; Shutter Island; and The Given Day—as well as Coronado, a collection of short stories and a play. He grew up in Boston, MA and now lives in California with his family.
ôPassionate and powerful. . . . That 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. . . . How you talk, where you live, whether you rent or own your home, whom you vote for, where (and if) you work, how much money you have in the bankùthese are the things that fill up a soul, Lehane suggests. These are the elements that shape a destiny. Not just the color of your skin. Few contemporary American writers understand this the way Lehane does. Race, in many ways, has blinded us to the even stricter imperatives of class. . . . Lehane is trying to get his arms around the origins of modern America, the divide between red states and blue states, the great cultural cleaver that splits the country right down the middle. . . . THE GIVEN DAY is a massive, ambitious novel.ö (Chicago Tribune)
