To mark the publication of new book Driven, author James Sallis’ sequel to Drive, we invite you to join us for a very special Q&A screening of Nicolas Winding-Refn’s and Ryan Gosling’s adaptation, one of the best films of 2011.
The author will be at the Lexi, in conversation with film critic and editor of the International Film Guide, Ian Haydn-Smith, and there will be opportunity to put your questions to both, find out what happens to Gosling’s character, and to buy a signed copy of the book.
Seasoned noir writer Sallis has published fourteen novels, multiple collections of short stories, essays, and poems, books of musicology, a biography of Chester Himes, and a translation of Raymond Queneau’s novel Saint Glinglin. He has written about books for the L.A. Times, New York Times, and Washington Post, and for some years served as a books columnist for the Boston Globe. In 2007 he received a lifetime achievement award from Bouchercon. In addition to Drive, the six Lew Griffin books are now in development as feature films.
He also looks a lot like -well, quite like – Ryan Gosling. If you like that sort of thing.
