While browsing through amazon.com's Elmore Leonard listings,
I found a $50 special order title called NOTEBOOKS. Does
anyone know anything about this book? Is it worth $50?
By the way, regarding the discussion about where to start
with Leonard: CITY PRIMEVAL, it seems to me, is the first one
to read, the most compelling one to read (a real classic, if
for no other reason than the skilful blending of the two
genres, hard-boiled and Western). Then add STICK, SPLIT
IMAGES, LABRAVA, CAT CHASER, and GLITZ. That probably is the
"essential" list, although you're missing something by not
going back to pick up SWAG, THE GOLD COAST, THE BIG BOUNCE,
and THE MOONSHINE WAR. And you're also missing a lot of fun
by not picking up some of the later books, GET SHORTY
probably chief among them.
