    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: The Definitive Biography of Elmore Leonard, June 20, 2001 Reviewer: Andrew McAleer from Boston, MA United States In this engaging, readable biogrpahy of the man Walker Percy called "the greatest crime writer of our time," biographer James E. Devlin follows sedulously the long career of Elmore Leonard. In stimulating fashion the author discusses Leonard's connection to pulp, the Western genre, crime literature, Hammett, Chandler, and George V. Higgins. This study is the definitive biography of Leonard a writer who deserves serious critical attention and gets it from Devlin--a professor of English Literature at State University, New York. --Andrew McAleer is the author of Appearance of Counsel and the assistant editor of the Rex Stout Journal.
