We’re back! Apologies for the hiatus, but these books don’t read themselves! We were saddened to hear about the passing of the great Elmore Leonard, so in honor of his life and illustrious career, we are discussing the first of several of his novels that have been adapted to film. First up, Jeff’s favorite Tarantino flick, Jackie Brown! It was adapted from Leonard’s late 90’s novel Rum Punch, with a few changes here and there, some minor, but a few VERY drastic changes. Did they work? Only one of us can tell you for sure, so listen and find out what Brynna thinks of the adaptation, and hear Jeff go on and on about his respect for Robert Forster’s performance. It’s good to be back, folks!
