National Book Tour: Jens Lapidus' Easy Money

Jens Lapidus, author of Easy Money , brings his national book tour to UWM.� Easy Money is an unflinching look at Stockholm's underworld, told from the perspective of the mob bosses, the patsies, and the thugs who help operate its twisted justice system. The book has been called "a searing debut" by Publishers Weekly , and critic James Ellroy has described it as "an epic European thriller to rival the Stieg Larsson books...beautifully rendered and a wildly thrilling novel." Audience members will get to preview the film adaptation three months before its U.S. debut. The action film is directed by Daniel Espinoza, director of the current hit "Safe House" starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. A lively discussion and book signing starts at�5 pm in Curtin Hall, room 175; the film will be screened at 9 pm in the Union Theater. Free and open to the public. Contact for more information.
