The New York Times is one of several outlets reporting that crime novelist Elmore Leonard has passed away at 87 years old.
According to the article, Leonard had his first story published in 1951 and “60 years later, was still churning out a book a year.” He is known for novels such as ‘Glitz’ and ‘Get Shorty,’ some of which were also adapted for movie and television.
I personally haven’t read much by Elmore Leonard, but I know my father is a fan of his work, and I am sure he will be missed in literary world.
