10/11/1925     Elmore Leonard, Bad Guys
On this day in 1925 Elmore Leonard was born in New Orleans. Leonard's view of his villains and born-to-losers: ". . . I don't think of them as bad guys. I just think of them as, for the most part, normal people who get up in the morning and they wonder what they're going to have for breakfast, and they sneeze, and they wonder if they should call their mother, and then they rob a bank. Because that's the way they are. . . ."

Interview with Don Swaim
"Elmore Leonard, author of books such as Rum Punch, Bandits, Hombre, Get Shorty, Maximum Bob, Freaky Deaky and Killshot, talks with Don Swaim in this 1985 interview. The pair discuss Leonard's re-release of his book Dutch Treat, which coincidently was Leonard's nickname while growing up. They also discuss some of his other publications, how he goes about his research, and why he quit drinking heavily." (29 minutes)
