9780062197757: Live by Night

Joe Coughlin is nineteen when he meets Emma Gould. A smalltime thief in 1920s Boston, he is told to cuff her while his accomplices raid the casino she works for. But Joe falls in love with Emma - and his life changes for ever.

That meeting is the beginning of Joe's journey to becoming one of the nation's most feared and respected gangsters. It is a journey beset by violence, double-crossing, drama and pain. And it is a journey into the soul of prohibition-era America...

A powerful, deeply moving novel, Live By Night is a tour-de-force by Dennis Lehane, writer on The Wire and author of modern classics such as Shutter Island, Gone, Baby, Gone and The Given Day.

Review:

A gripping rollercoaster of a ride through the darker days of American social history . . . pure class ( Herald Sun)

His best novel yet, this sprawling gangster yarn so well corralled by Lehane's superb, direct style of writing and attention to detail ( Daily Telegraph Australia)

Once again Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island, creates great characters, great atmosphere and a plot that keeps rolling along, page after page ( Courier Mail)

A gripping ride ( Townsville Bulletin)

I've been waiting for this book ever since I first saw it on the publisher's release list about six months ago . . . A crime drama, a love story and a historical tale all rolled into one expertly written novel. Very highly recommended ( Illawarra Mercury)

Lehane's vivid, detailed prose ripples with tension ( The Australian Way)

This is dark, gritty and amoral stuff ( Sunday Age)

A compelling read, but certainly not one for the faint of heart ( Sunday Herald Sydney)

Lehane gives fascinating treatment to the life of an outlaw . . . His writing is powerful and moving, inviting you in ( Manly Daily)

Live by Night is up there with [Lehane's] best work ( Newtown Review of Books)

Lehane's vivid, detailed prose ripples with tension ( Qantas)

A top-notch adventure that keeps the pages turning at a rapid rate ( Adelaide Advertiser)

Book Description:

A major new standalone from the acclaimed author

Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane comes this epic, unflinching tale of the making and unmaking of a gangster in the Prohibition Era of the Roaring Twenties--now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, and Sienna Miller. Meticulously researched and artfully told, Live by Night is the riveting story of one man s rise from Boston petty thief to the Gulf Coast s most successful rum runner, and it proves again that the accolades New York Times bestseller Lehane consistently receives are well deserved. He is indeed, a master (Philadelphia Inquirer) whose true literary forefathers include John Steinbeck as well as Raymond Chandler (Baltimore Sun). And, Boy, does he know how to write (Elmore Leonard). Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780062197757
