The King of Crime Fiction

From the August 21, 2013 copy of The New Yorker: Anthony Lane on "Elmore Leonard's Talk."

An excerpt:

"One problem was that a single page of him made other writers, especially the loftier and more lauded variety, seem about as legible as wallpaper paste."

The first Elmore Leonard novel I read was "City Primeval." That was the beginning of a serious addiction.

Amazing writer.
