RARA-AVIS: leonard

I'm reading Elmore Leonard's 'Swag.' An oldie but goody which, above all, reminds me that Leonard is in a class by himself. The king, while the rest are, at best, knaves.

The man doesn't have any message to tell. Just plain flat out entertains from page 1. Funny as hell, too. One character is viewing a lineup and says, 'yeah, that's the guy.' The cop says, 'are you sure?' The witness says, 'Well, it sure as hell ain't any of the coppers you got lined up with him."

I mean, so true, yet hilarious.
