In Sunlight or In Shadow Summary

In Sunlight or In Shadow: Stories Inspired by the Paintings of Edward Hopper by Lawrence Block

"Edward Hopper is surely the greatest American narrative painter. His work bears special resonance for writers and readers." Says Lawrence Block, who has invited seventeen outstanding writers to join him in an unprecedented anthology of brand new stories. The results are remarkable and range across all genres, marrying literary excellence with storytelling savvy. Contributors include Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Olen Butler, Michael Connelly, Megan Abbott, Craig Ferguson, Nicholas Christopher, Jill D. Block, Joe R. Lansdale, Justin Scott, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Warren Moore, Jonathan Santlofer, Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child and Lawrence Block himself. Each story is illustrated with a reproduction of the painting that inspired it.

In Sunlight or In Shadow Reviews

"He [Lawrence Block] has assembled a superb, and very varied, group of writers to spin their own golden thread from Hopper's raw flax: crime writers such as Michael Connelly and Jeffery Deaver, literary giants like Joyce Carol Oates, horror legend Stephen King, even the art historian who did the first full catalogue of Hopper's output, Gail Levin. And it's a sumptuous production in beautiful hardback, with each story accompanied by a colour reproduction of the painting which inspired it." -- The Irish Independent
