“Jackie Brown” and Elmore Leonard’s “Rum Punch”

Both the movie, directed by Quentin Tarantino, and the novel, by Elmore Leonard, are simply brilliant. Notably, Tarantino’s take on Leonard’s book, is the master’s favorite.

“Elmore Leonard’s 10 Rules of Writing” is my favorite book on writing; rules I attempt to subscribe to when I write. I love his dialog and the way he starts in the middle of the action; obviously I am a fan. Do yourself a favor, check them out; Rum Punch (read it first) & Jackie Brown – if you haven’t done these, you’re in for a treat. If you have, it’ll be like visiting an old friend for a comfortable chat.
