it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

Someday I would really like to meet a protagonist from an Elmore Leonard novel. They're everything I'd like to be: Witty, cool, smart, attractive. Crack shots. Stylish dressers. They don't take any crap and they don't sell it either. But they still manage to retain an irresistible mystique. And they do it all effortlessly.

Not surprisingly, I think my chances of meeting such a person are slim. So I'll just keep reading Elmore Leonard novels like The Hot Kid, imagining myself as a gun moll and wishing that Prohibition would return, just for a bit, so I could frequent a speakeasy.

I guess a Sidecar will have to do.
