Day 25: Shutter Island

Dennis Lehane

Dennis Lehane was born in Massachusetts and his novels are almost always set in or around Boston,Massachusetts. When he was due to attend the Cannes film festival’s opening day in 2003 he chose to speak at his alma mater for that years graduating class instead of walking the red carpet. His last day job was as a chauffeur at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston. Before becoming a full-time writer, Lehane worked as a counselor with mentally handicapped and abused children, waited tables, parked cars, drove limos, worked in bookstores, and loaded tractor-trailers.

His one regret is that no one ever gave him a chance to tend bars.
