FIU MFA program alumnus Dennis Lehane’s tenth novel and eleventh book, Live By Night, has just been published. A follow-up to Lehane’s first historical novel The Given DayLive By Night is set in the Prohibition era in locations ranging from Boston to Tampa.

In her New York Times review, Janet Maslin calls it “Crime Noir 101, as taught by the best of its current practitioners,” and Tampa Times book critic Colette Bancroft says, “Live by Night takes on big subjects — race, class, money, religion, friendship, family, violence — by embedding them in irresistible storytelling about a compelling, conflicted and mordantly funny man.”
