There’s A Reason I Love This Guy

From Dennis Lehane’s Op-Ed piece in the New York Times today:

Trust me, we won’t be giving up any civil liberties to keep ourselves safe because of this. We won’t cancel next year’s marathon. We won’t drive to New Hampshire and stockpile weapons. When the authorities find the weak and terminally maladjusted culprit or culprits, we’ll roll our eyes at whatever backward ideology they embrace and move on with our lives.

Go… read.

Dennis Lehane Aims for Something Bigger

leave a comment

If you do this job right, there should be days that are really hard. When I wrote the scene in ‘Mystic River’ where I had to become somebody who’s sexually attracted to a 12-year-old boy, holy God, that was horrible. I shut down for a week after that.

Hands down one of my favorite writers ever.
