Everything you love about Leonard’s fiction—and more—is evident in Cuba Libre. No wonder the New York Times Book Review enthusiastically declared him “a literary genius.”

Elmore Leonard wrote more than forty books during his long career, including the bestsellersRaylan,Tishomingo Blues,Be Cool,Get Shorty, andRum Punch, as well as the acclaimed collectionWhen the Women Come Out to Dance, which was aNew York TimesNotable Book.
