    In Terms Of “best Book” By Elmore Leonard; What In Your View Was His “best” Work? The crime novelist just passed away today – I was just reading a part of his bio.

    BQ: What were Mr. Leonard’s best five works in your estimation?

  • Clara says:

    Are There Any Books Like “American Beauty”, “The Collector”, “Lolita”? Hi, I’d like to know if there are any books similar to the movie “American Beauty” or to “The Collector” by John Fowles and “Lolita” by Nabokov. Books about lust and obsession and also satirical books about the American culture. I’d prefer fictional stories, like a novel. Thanks in advance!

    • Curator says:

      The perfume collector : a novel / Kathleen Tessaro.

      Carmen : an urban adaptation of the opera / by Walter Dean Myers.

      Indecent Obsession by Colleen McCullough

      For satirical books about American culture try these”
      Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard
      Bad Monkey by Carl Hiassen

    • Curator says:

      I read one of his Raylan books. It wasn’t particularly good. A lot of it had been chopped up into about three different tv shows. If you’ve watched the tv show already, I think you won’t be impressed by the books that much.

      I had the same sort of experience when I was reading another of his books and realized halfway through I was reading a different version of Quentin Tarentino’s Jackie Brown.

      Leonard isn’t a bad writer, but after reading a dozen or so of his novels, I think I’m finished with him. Personally, I think I’d rank him a level below Douglas Lehane (who’s on the shelf right next to him) and Don Winslow in the action/detective novel genre. All three have had books made into movies, but of the three, Leonard’s are the only ones that I’d say were worse than the movies. Maybe it’s just that I saw the movies first.

  • Frank says:

    Who Are Some Contemporary Authors Based In Los Angeles? For my own reading — I’m interested in reading some interesting authors who live in or near Los Angeles, or who write about contemporary life in Southern California.

    A couple of authors who I like already are Kafka & Ray Bradbury.

    Thanks!

    • Curator says:

      Dean Koontz – Most of his stories are based in the LA/OC area. There are some exceptions, but most.
      James P. Blaylock
      Elmore Leonard
      These come to mind immediately. There are undoubtedly many others.

  • Megan says:

    Books Like Mystic River? Mystic River Is my favorite book of all times.
    I would love to read some more books like it aka .A dark humanity aspect

    Would love some suggestions 🙂
    (though I’ve already read all of Dennis Lehanes other books, so please don’t suggest those 🙂
