Brief History - Biography

Elmore Leonard was born in New Orleans in 1925 and is more popular now than ever before. He is a very influential author in his genre. This was so for quite some time amongst those familiar with his written work but a series of highly successful film adaptations gave him a much wider audience. His first published novels were in fact westerns, whilst these are not what he remains best known for they are of interest to collectors. His crime fiction is the area in which he excels and his importance to the genre cannot be overstated. His blend of quality writing, human observation and solid crime fiction plotting means he all but stands alone in the genre. The first of the mystery fiction books was The Big Bounce followed in the same year by The Moonshine War.
