Elmore Leonard obit

Great obituary from Norm Wilner of Toronto’s Now Magazine on the late, great author of such classics as Get Shorty and Rum Punch and also the script-writer for Charles Bronson tough guy classic Mr. Majestyk:

Through it all, Leonard kept writing. His books are immaculate, clean, delightful. He captures characters with simple, straightforward prose and lets them speak their own voices. The author often claimed he never really planned out his crime stories; he just started writing and watched things work themselves out, as though he was looking through a window into a fully realized universe.

For the rest of the obit, go here.
