The internationally bestselling author of MYSTIC RIVER returns with a riveting new work
Dennis Lehane was born and raised in Dorchester, Massachusetts. He has written seven novels- A Drink Before the War; Darkness, Take My Hand; Sacred; Gone, Baby, Gone; Prayers for Rain; Mystic River; Shutter Island and a short story collection, Coronado. Mystic River was turned into an Oscar-nominated film, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Sean Penn, Kevin Bacon and Tim Robbins. Before becoming a full-time writer, Dennis Lehane worked as a counsellor with mentally handicapped and abused children, waited tables, parked cars, drove limos, worked in bookstores, and loaded tractor-trailers. His one regret is that no one ever gave him a chance to tend bar. He lives in the Boston area.
"From the author of Mystic River comes a tough, taut collection of short stories, each exploring big crimes in small towns...No one writes such edgy material with so much style." -- DAILY MIRROR "Coronado is a collection of short stories, exquisite fragments with jagged edges and raw emotions." -- GUARDIAN "Vintage Lehane, complete with the gallows humour." -- DAILY MAIL "A brilliant, insightful and intriguing literary voyage." -- BOSTON HERALD "His ability to create crystal clear portraits of humanity and then place them in the darker side of life is a writer's true gift'" -- USA TODAY
