One of my all-time favorite writers, Megan Abbott, has a great Q&A with Elmore Leonard in the Los Angeles Times Magazine this month. She gets some good stuff out of Dutch.
Megan’s latest book, Dare Me, is out in July. I’ve been describing it as cheerleader noir, thought it’s a lot tougher than that sounds. Abbott deals with the hierarchy of a cheerleading group and proves they’re a lot tougher than you would think. Great read. Can’t wait to put in people’s hands this summer.
