Elmor Leonard's Trick

A few days ago Elmore John Leonard, Jr. died. He wrote crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many of which have been adapted into motion pictures. One of them is Get Shorty, a favorite of mine. Leonard was highly successful as a writer, and I love the way he explained his string of bestsellers: "I just leave out the parts that people skip."
