No, it isn't.
He isn't a spring chicken, that is for sure.

I think I have read every one of his non-Westerns.smile.gif

Didn't realize he was that old then again just became aware of him w/ Justified.
post #2556 of 3235
He is one of the best crime,western authors ever and i admire his works. He is 87 but i hope to see him healthy,well for many more years.

Its amazing he can still write quality books in his 80s.

As many of you know, Elmore Leonard has long been one of my my favorite crime writers. It will be a shame if, at long last, he won't be able to give us more. Even if he can't, he has had a long run and a great one.
post #2558 of 3235
Hope for the best, indeed. As most of you have probably surmised, this shouldn't have much impact on the stories told on Justified, as his day-to-day input has been minimal for some time, but you hope that he will have a full recovery and will be able to continue to write. Really, wouldn't any of us be thrilled to be able to do what we love (and get paid well for it) long into our 80's? That's a successful life and career by any standard, and well deserved.

The American Film/Entertainment Landscape would be a much poorer place had it not been for Elmore Leonard .. his direct and indirect influence paints a large swath ..

Here is to a swift and full recovery ..

WOW, what a bummer.frown.gif

RIP, Dutch.

Just heard about it on the news. Truly a sad day for all. Hope that doesn't adversely affect the rest of the series.

Doubtful. They've established the show's tone and style based on his novels and they've comfortably hit their groove by this point. I suspect his actual participation in the show's scripting department was minimal, possibly more symbolic than anything.

In a way I hate it that we have lost the sainted Elmore Leonard. On the other hand, though, I would be a happy camper if, like Leonard, I could live a vigorous and productive life before finally having a stroke and having to go shortly thereafter at nearly 88 years old. There really are fates worse than death. Think dementia and long term disability. I had an aunt who lived to be 106 but was soft in the head for more than 10 years before she died. No thanks!

You are correct. Sad day for Elmore Leonard fans, but it won't affect the show at this point.

Just found this wonderful piece about Elmore Leonard's passing on Grantland. The author of the piece, Stephen Hyden, clearly admires and understands the Great Man's work.

Agree - the article captures EL's spirit quite well. I will miss his wry observations on human behavior and the tortured motivations of many of his characters, as well as the wonderful way he captured speech patterns and the great conversations his characters have.
Rest well EL - you brought great pleasure to your readers over the years.

Good stuff, thanks! I liked the short piece linked to in the main one about Graham Yost's impressions of Leonard almost as much as I liked the one you linked to..

The Huff Post interviewing a producer from Justified on how the show felt about Leonard's death. I think I know that producer...

Well reasoned responses from your son - found the interviewer to be a bit hyper. I re-watched "Get Shorty" the other night, a movie EL considered to be one of, if not the best, versions of one of his books made into a film. On top of commemorating EL's departure, it was also poignant as it featured performances by the recently departed Dennis Farina & James Gandolfini.
