What’s Elmore Leonard’s best novel?

"What’s Elmore Leonard’s best novel?," asks Dwight Garner in the Sunday New York Times Book Review. "In the right bar, that question could start a rumble. But Mark Reiter tackles it with elegance and wit in his recent book The Enlightened Bracketologist: The Final Four of Everything, which he wrote with Richard Sandomir and Nigel Holmes."

I'm such a fan of the writer that I wouldn't even pretend to rank his novels, although I would have guessed Get Shorty would have made the Final Four. It didn't.

Nor did the new novel, Up in Honey's Room.

Click over to the Times to see which books made Dutch's Final Four.
