Best-selling author Elmore Leonard dead at 87


Wow, what a cool guy! I’ve only read Elmore Leonard’s “Get Shorty.” Yet, I can say I’ve enjoyed Leonard’s characters – Chilly Palmer, Karen Sisco, and Juvenal in different films. RIP.

Elmore Leonard, writer of sharp, colorful crime stories, dead at 87

Twenty-six of his books have been adapted for the screen, including box office hits like “Get Shorty”, “Out of Sight” and “3:10 to Yuma”.

How do you pay tribute to someone many consider one of America’s great writers. The best way — is to hear from the man himself, in his own words.
