More Elmore

Tulk has passed along an essay on Elmore Leonard from The New York Times that I like even better than the excellent Guardian overview he posted earlier. The reviewer, novelist Olen Steinhauer, admires Leonard in a way that is closer to the heart of the matter, as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps this is because I first began reading him in mass quantities during the fruitless years trying to write screenplays. They don't call him a writer's writer for nothing.

Steinhaur has been on my "ought to read" list for years. Time to bump him up to the top.
