Elmore Leonard & Son: It Runs In The Family

4 April 2012 5:50 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I didn’t even know Elmore Leonard had a son, much less one who wrote.  It’s not a complete surprise, since Peter Leonard has only published four novels to date, versus his father’s 45.  His most recent is called All He Saw Was The Girl, and its opening scenes take place in an Italian jail, much like the one Peter spent a week in after a young drunken night in Rome led to he and some friends stealing a taxi-cab.  When his father, already well on his way to being the high watermark of modern crime fiction, heard about this, he told his son, “Hard time makes the boy the man.”

It also helps make him a writer, it would seem.

There are many interesting tidbits about the Leonard writing dynasty in this excellent piece by Ann O’Neill over at CNN.  Peter’s writing career is beginning to really get rolling, »

Justified, Ep. 3.03: “Harlan Roulette” gets down to business, but doesn’t forget the wit

1 February 2012 9:27 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 3, Episode 3: “Harlan Roulette”

Written by Dave Andron

Directed by Jon Avnet

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX

It’s still early to make too many predictions about Justified‘s third season, but it’s noteworthy that there are distinct shades of Breaking Bad in this week’s installment, “Harlan Roulette.” The effects of Oxycontin (aka “hillbilly heroin”) on its users begins to become a plot point. A charismatic, disquieting villain lays out a plan to manufacture and sell drugs in a slick, corporate fashion. (“That’s why they call it organized crime.”) Hell, one character even makes a reference to the possibility he might “break bad,” just in case the comparison wasn’t explicit enough. Of course, the two shows are fundamentally different in a lot of ways, but the nod seems to acknowledge that the show plans to encroach on some of that same, deeply perilous territory. »

Elmore Leonard: the great American novelist

27 January 2012 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Leonard is regarded as the greatest American crime writer, surpassing even Raymond Chandler. But it is time to drop the qualification of genre

The best novelists create a world around the reader. You can feel it bubbling up in irrepressible invention. So we have "a guy by the name of Booker, a twenty-five-year old super-dude twice convicted felon" in his Jacuzzi when the telephone rings. No one answers it, and Booker gets out of the Jacuzzi. At the other end of the line, a woman, Moselle, asks him to sit down. When he does, she informs him that he's triggered a bomb in the chair – "when you get up, honey, what's left of your ass is gonna go clear through the ceiling". The bomb-disposal boys arrive in their nonchalant way: "Booker said 'Another one goes hmmmmm. I'm sitting here on high explosives the motherfucker goes hmmmmm.'" Is there a bomb? »
