Get Shorty at 30: Dennis Lehane on Elmore Leonard's Hollywood satire


The late, great Elmore "Dutch" Leonard is one of my favorite writers and Get Shorty is one of his best crime novels.


The Guardian offers Dennis Lehane's fine introduction to the Folio Society Edition of Elmore Leonard’s Get Shorty on the novel’s 30th anniversary.
