Bookbits for September 10th, 2013

  • R. I. P. Both Elmore Leonard and Seamus Heaney died in the past month.  Leonard is probably best known for Get Shorty, while Nobel Laureate Heaney almost single-handedly revived interest in Beowulf with his seminal translation – as well as writing a bit of poetry on his own…  I’m sure I’m missing a few more greats who passed away during my holiday, but these two stood out.
