A solid storyteller with a keen eye for detail and vivid descriptive power
Herndon, VA (Vocus) April 21, 2010
Conservative Hollywood screenwriter and novelist Andrew Klavan is distinguished among his Hollywood colleagues: He’s politically incorrect and successful. He warned against government health care in the Wall Street Journal, and he’s a contributing editor of the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, where he's ever-vigilante towards media manipulation and propoganda. See his commentaries (including videos) at AndrewKlavan.com.
Also, watch the video promo for his latest teen thriller THE LONG WAY HOME, second in Klavan's Homelanders series, about teenager Charlie West’s quest to find why he’s the target of terrorists and police at TheHomelanders.com. Summit Entertainment—maker of THE HURT LOCKER and TWILIGHT movies—has optioned Klavan’s teen mysteries for film. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of Transformers and Stardust, will produce.
Even the American Library Association lauds his novels. Its publication, Booklist, says THE LONG WAY HOME contains “action sequences that never let up, and showy set pieces that are wrung for every possible drop of nervous sweat. Best of all, unlike many second chapters, this one pays off with some seriously heavy revelations.” The Washington Times says Klavan is “A solid storyteller with a keen eye for detail and vivid descriptive power,” and Stephen King hails Andrew as "the most original novelist of crime and suspense since Cornell Woolrich."
Andrew Klavan’s bestselling crime novels include TRUE CRIME, filmed starring Clint Eastwood, and DON’T SAY A WORD, filmed starring Michael Douglas.
The Edgar Award-winning author and screenwriter has received extensive national coverage on The Rush Limbaugh Show, The National Review, The Glenn Beck Show, Fox and Friends, Publisher's Weekly, The Mike Gallagher Show, and several others. His work has also been featured in the Washington Times, The Denver Times, and World, and such popular websites as TheDailyBeast.com, BigHollywood.com, and FrontPageMagazine.com.
