On the Passing of Elmore Leonard:
As you have probably heard, Elmore Leonard passed away at 7:15 this morning due to complications from a stroke. He was at home surrounded by his loving family.It feels not in keeping with Elmore’s “no fuss” persona to try to pay tribute to this great man. But Elmore was a true legend—unpretentious, unbelievably talented, and the coolest dude in the room.William Morrow has published 47 titles with Elmore since 1980 with more than 8 million books in print in the US, including e-books. He has won more than a dozen literary awards, including a medallion from The National Book Foundation saluting lifetime achievement.All of us at HarperCollins will miss working with this national treasure and one of our favorite authors of all time.—Michael Morrison, President & Publisher, HarperCollins

All of us at HarperCollins will miss working with this national treasure and one of our favorite authors of all time.
