Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard

In this book, a collection of people sashays into Los Angeles, to dabble in the two great American dreams, Hollywood and the Mafia. This cast of schemeballs entwine the reader in their scams, heists and smart lines. Leonard is an addictive peddler of dreams, a writer whose use of dialogue is unsurpassed, who makes you shake with laughter and suspense and beg for more.
Elmore Leonard was born in New Orleans.
