Dutton launched Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City’s Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice by award-winning Boston Globe journalists Scott Helman and Jenna Russell on April 1 with an excerpt in the Boston Globe Magazine, reviews in USA Today, Washington Post, and author appearances on MSNBC’s The Cycle, NPR’s Leonard Lopate Show, and Al-Jazeera America’s Consider This, as well as multiple local Boston TV and radio shows. Preceding the 2014 Boston Marathon on April 21, upcoming publicity includes appearances on MSNBC’s Morning Joeand Andrea Mitchell Reports, CNN Jake Tapper, a national radio tour, an Associated Press review, and several author events throughout New England, including a panel on 4/17 at Boston Public Library, very close to the marathon finish line.
With detailed reporting and hundreds of first-person interviews, Long Mile Home is a comprehensive and riveting account of last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. Reviews have been glowing, including one in The Washington Post: “It is a harrowing narrative of the events and a behind-the-scenes look at the public officials and everyday people forever changed by the attack. It is also a portrait of a major American city, its psyche and the distance runners who consider the race a sacred rite.”
