Elmore Leonard, Still Delighting Readers – and Interviewers
March 1st, 2011
It’s a treat to be able to share an author like Elmore Leonard with someone who hasn’t read him before. And it’s special treat to share him with someone who’s never had the chance to interview him. So when my radio colleague Jen Richer told me she’d set up an interview with Dutch, I was delighted for her.
I’ve interviewed him seven or eight times, going back nearly 25 years, and have never been less than enthralled. He’s a master craftsman who loves to talk about his craft. Jen found it hard to end the interview at the designated time, and you’ll hear why.
This, by the way, is also a first for me. This is the first ever Eye on Books “guest interview.” Congratulations, Jen!
