MORE FROM HARD CASE CRIME!

MORE FROM HARD CASE CRIME!

THE WORD FROM EDITOR CHARLES ARDAI ON LAWRENCE BLOCK’S LATEST, GETTING OFF . . .

We're just six weeks away from a pretty big event: publication of Lawrence Block's new novel Getting Off. (Which also happens to be the kickoff of our relaunch of Hard Case Crime, but that's another story.) Block hit the New York Times Bestseller List with his last new book, A Drop Of The Hard Stuff, which won raves left and right (and very much deserved them). Getting Off is a very different sort of book – among other things, it's possibly the single *dirtiest* book to be published in America in the last 40 years – but it's every bit as strong a book, and possibly even more disturbing. One blogger who requested an advance copy just posted, "Occasionally I watch a movie or read a book that makes such a deep and lasting impression [that] I can't stop thinking about it...Well, Getting Off did it to me. Last night was the first time in ages a book has kept me up all night."
