If you don't already know, Elmore Leonard died. One of my favorite novelists, his books always entertained and cheered me, and I always felt better at the end then when I started reading.

Here's a link with some video footage of him.

Good writer, especially of dialogue.
'Listen, some quiet night, when you've shirked your work that day. Do you hear
that distant, almost inaudible clicking sound? That's one of your
competitors, working away in the night in
Paris or London or Erie, PA.'
