Letting Go: Marilyn Stasio about new novels by John Harvey, Walter Mosley and Peter Lovesey and about the Akashic anthology Prison Noir edited by Joyce Carol Oates. Her reviews at The New York Times.

»Of course, Dennis Lehane will always find a home for his work, but part of this story is not just getting people like Dennis Lehane or Joyce Carol Oates or Pete Hamill to write stories for us. (…) It’s also about bringing up unknown writers. We’re not just proud that we have some bestselling novelists writing for us but also that we publish brand-new writers in these collections.«
