A Toast To Elmore Leonard

A toast to the recently departed author, Elmore Leonard.  I read almost all his novels, with the earlier ones his best.

A toast to Elmore Leonard for snappy dialogue.

A toast to Elmore Leonard for memorable characters

A toast to Elmore Leonard for his excellent stories.  Several were made into movies, too.    I didn’t care for his later novels as they were all dialogue.   La Brava, Rum Punch, Get Shorty, Riding The Rap, Pronto–yeah, good stuff.

When you sit down with his earlier stuff you settle right into his world.

He also has his 10 Rules of Writing.   I love rule #10.  It’s the most difficult.
