Driven

by James Sallis

ABOUT THE BOOK

Drive, James Sallis's critically acclaimed thriller about a movie stunt-man who moonlights as a getaway driver for the mob, became an award-winning film, directed by Nicholas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan and introduced Sallis to a worldwide audience - this is the stunning sequel

Seven years have passed since Driver ended his campaign against those who double-crossed him. He has left the old life, become Paul West and founded a successful business back in Phoenix.

But walking down the street one day, he and his fiancee are attacked by two men and, while Driver dispatches both, his fiancee is killed.

Sinking back into anonymity, aided by his friend Felix, an ex-gangbanger and Desert Storm vet, Driver realises that his past stalks him - and will not stop.

He has to turn and face it.


CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR JAMES SALLIS

James Sallis is a superb writer
- The Times

Sallis is a fastidious man, intelligent and widely read. There's nothing slapdash or merely strategic about his work ... peculiar and visionary.
- Iain Sinclair, London Review of Books

An immensely rewarding read
- Paul Kane, @JildySauce

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR DRIVEN

Lean and lethal noir narrative
- Mark Mills, The New York Times [read the full review]

Undiluted noir . . . dark, urgent and utterly compelling
- Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail [read the full review]

Haunting, eloquent noir
- Geoffrey Wansell, The Daily Mail: Summer Reads [read the full review]

Driven is a lean and nasty piece of neo-noir. I took my seat on page one and didn't get back up again until it ended (far too quickly.) Always a pleasure to be in the hands of a master like James Sallis
- Dennis Lehane

A mean, lean drive into darkness
- Christopher Fowler, Financial Times [read the full review]

Terse, brutal, poetic, perfectly wrought sequel. Come into this excellent novel cold, strap in, just hit the gas, and go.
- Publishers Weekly starred review [read the full review]

If James Sallis’ totemic Driver seemed somehow superhuman in the original Drive, then in its sequel, things have evolved even further
- Declan Tan, 3ammagazine [read the full review]

Sublime, soulful, and essential
- Mike Stafford, Bookgeeks [read the full review]

From Drive to Driven: James Sallis' Plus-Perfect Noir
- Woody Haut [read the full review]

If Camus wrote pulp, he'd read like Sallis
- Andrew Donaldson, Times South Africa [read the full review]

A delicious slice of neo-noir crime served razor-sharp
- Marty Mulrooney, Alternative Magazine Online [read the full review]

**** - Excellent
- Richard Luck, Blokeley [read the full review]

Sallis’ prose remains taut and the wheel-spinning hero as cool as an Arctic cucumber
- Phil de Semlyen , Empire [read the full review]

atmospheric and utterly spell-binding
- Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail [read the full review]
