RARA-AVIS: Leonard's Swag

MT (matrxtech@sprintmail.com)
Wed, 17 Mar 1999 21:07:58 -0500 Stimulated by the mini-discussion of Elmore Leonard, I went and reread
his 1976 novel _Swag_. I read it in one sitting, and what a marvellous
book it is! I enjoyed watching how Leonard slowly builds up the
character of Stick, on which the entire novel rests. The novel starts
like a caper and ends like a tense western. I fully agree that this book
should be included among Leonard's best.
