Handwritten letter to Barnaby Conrad, Director of the Santa Barbara Writers' Conference, too busy with current projects to make a new commitment now
Autograph Letter signed: "Dutch", 1 page, 8½x11. Bloomfield Village, Michigan, 2000 September 15. On personal letterhead to "Dear Barney" [Barnaby Conrad]. In full: "I'm glad you're out of the Miramar, but I can't commit to anything until I finish the next book - I'm on page 8 - and a novella - an E-book for Contentville I said I'd do, and the TV project. Whenever I commit too far ahead I get in trouble. Thanks, though, for the motivation; I appreciate it and would like to come again sometime in the future. Your friend". Elmore Leonard (1925-2013) is best known for his Westerns and crime novels, many of which have been made into feature films. Beginning with Western short stories in 1951 for such publications as "Argosy", "Zane Grey Western" and "The Saturday Evening Post", Leonard then published The Bounty Hunters (1953), his first novel, which was followed by four more Westerns over the next eight years (his novel, Hombre, was chosen as one of the best Westerns of all time by the Western Writers of America in 1961). Since 1985, when he published Glitz, all of his novels -- Bandits, Touch, Freaky Deaky, Killshot, Get Shorty, Maximum Bob, Rum Punch (the basis of the film Jackie Brown), Pronto, Riding the Rap, Out of Sight and Cuba Libre - have become best sellers. American author Barnaby Conrad founded the Santa Barbara Writers' Conference and led through 2004. Vertical and horizontal folds. Moisture stains at upper section affecting the salutation. 1" horizontal tear at lower fold, right edge. Creased.
