Elmore Leonard

RIP Elmore Leonard. Yesterday, the American novelist and screenwriter died at the age of 87. Considered one of the most influential crime writers, Leonard was known for his gritty realism and strong dialogue. Among his best-known works are Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Rum Punch. A few his short stories have made it to the big and small screens including the film 3:10 to Yuma and the current television series Justified.

Were you a fan of his stories?
