1986 interview with Elmore Leonard promoting Bandits


This is something I discovered as part of my downsizing and de-hoarding process. Mystery Reporter was a freebie that B. Dalton bookstores would give away with the purchase of something. (Yes, there’s a cover price, but I’ll eat my shoe if I find out anyone ever paid for it.)

It’s Elmore Leonard doing a promotional interview for Bandits. Surprisingly for an interview for a freebie publication, it’s interesting, both for what he has to say and for a snapshot of where he was at this point in his writing career.
