It’s an excellent year for Dennis Lehane, winner of this year’s Edgar for Best Novel “Live by Night”. He now has his own Imprint “Dennis Lehane Books” via Harper Collins.
The first selection is The Cutting Season by Attica Locke, and the second is Visitation Street by Ivy Pochoda.
Lehane will oversee an eponymous line of books at HarperCollins that will publish a select number of fiction titles a year. With his impeccable publishing credentials, strong film and television connections, and a history of supporting emerging and established writers, Lehane will help identify and acquire literary fiction with a dark urban edge.
