Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I found that I could write two kinds of short stories: I could write very absurd, kind of surrealistic, funny stories; or I could write very dark, realistic -- hyper- realistic -- stories. I was never happy with that, because I couldn't meld the two. And my view of life is that it's both. - August 1999

Trivia:

Wrote, produced, and directed a film called Neighborhoods, but could not find anyone to purchase the film. After the success and critical acclaim of Mystic River, he is now working on the script for his Patrick McKenzie/Angela Gennaro novel Prayers for Rain. (2001) See more »
