Tributes: Elmore Leonard

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

The laconic Elmore Leonard once noted, “If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.” His ultimate object, he wrote, was “invisibility.”  Even punctuation was avoidable.  Dialogue and blank space ruled.  In the process, he wrote countless bestsellers over his long career, starting out with Westerns.  His novels and short stories often became films, including “Hombre,” “3:10 to Yuma, “The Tall T,” “Get Shorty” and “Out of Sight.”  He died at the age of 87, but you can hear many of his interviews with Leonard over the years below...and his sense of humor comes through loud and clear.
