Author Interview: Dennis Lehane

And here’s an interview with one of my most favorite writers, Dennis Lehane, the author of Live by Night.

I’ve just learned that Mr. Lehane has been obsessed with the Prohibition era since his pre-teen years. Wow! Everything in that time period seems “cool” to him: the music, the way men and women dressed, the way they talked, the cars they drove, etc. Naturally, he’d always wanted to write about it, and then he did. And he really nailed it. Reading his novel was like watching a movie for me–that’s how vividly he portrayed that era. I just loved it! 🙂
