Get Shorty

New York: Delacorte Press, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover. 1st edition Fine in a jacket with bubbling/separation of the polypropylene film and toning to the extremities, else near fine. Signed by Leonard on the half title. Among the slyest of the hypermodern Hollywood novels, and the film (Rene Russo, John Travolta, Gene Hackman, and Danny Devito) was almost as good as the book. Fine / near fine. Item #191

Conniving characters descended from antediluvian ancestors that the flood could not wash away, a neon background, and a spry plotline about the quest for elusive fame, and underlying the storyline is an idea. Fame often makes people vain yet seldom makes them proud, so in the future we won’t all be famous for 15 minutes, we will all be famous all the time, but only in our own minds, the age of the first person singular, private fame, myspace fame, karaoke fame (the religion of the day).
