"Gut-wrenching force...A majestic, fiery epic. The Given Day is a huge, impassioned, intensively researched book that brings history alive." - The New York Times

Dennis Lehane, the New York Times bestselling author of Live by Night—now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck—offers an unflinching family epic that captures the political unrest of a nation caught between a well-patterned past and an unpredictable future. This beautifully written novel of American history tells the story of two families—one black, one white—swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries and anarchists, immigrants and ward bosses, Brahmins and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power at the end of World War I.

Dennis Lehane is the author of ten previous novels—including theNew York TimesbestsellersLive by Night;Moonlight Mile;Gone, Baby, Gone;Mystic River;Shutter Island; andThe Given Day—as well asCoronado, a collection of short stories and a play. He and his wife, Angie, currently live in California with their children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In depth characters I read this book after finishing Live by Night and World Gone By, it is a great novel that describes the complex characters and their back story. I could related few of the incident to the other two novels and have a better understanding of the character. I would recommend this novel to a friend but it isn't my favorite from Dennis Lehane.

“A brawling, brawny, muscular epic—exactly what great mainstream novels used to be.”
