AS_2415There are a few living legends in the pulp fiction racket, and probably the biggest of them all right now is Elmore Leonard, known to friends and fans as “Dutch.”  If you’ve seen movies like GET SHORTY or OUT OF SIGHT or Quentin Tarantino’s JACKIE BROWN or the Christian Bale/Russell Crowe Western 3:10 TO YUMA or the TV series JUSTIFIED, you know Dutch’s work.  Doubly so if you’ve read any of his amazing books.

Well, who do you think is a fan of our little book club? Someone on his staff brought the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society to his attention, and he said, “Send them some books!” Few days later, a care package arrived in the mail, and opening it was like opening a treasure chest.  GLITZ! STICK! FREAKY DEAKY! RUM PUNCH! One great book after another.

So of course we had to take them out to the park, it being warm at last.

Thank you, Dutch.  Your books are in good hands, we promise.
