When the women come out to dance. Elmore Leonard (1925-) was born in New Orleans and educated at the University of Detroit, where he received a PhD in 1950. He worked in advertising for the next sixteen years before becoming a full-time writer. Read the Book of Judges, Miss Olympia said, the twenty-first verse. It was about men waiting for women, the daughters of Shiloh, to come out to dance so they could take them, force the women to be their wives. Lourdes knew of cleaning women who sang while they worked, but not ones who danced. She wondered what it would be like to dance naked in front of men. You don’t want to be with him, Lourdes said, but you want to live in this house. There it is, the woman who didn’t look at all like a Mrs. Mahmood said.

In this collection of new and recently published short fiction, Elmore Leonard demonstrates the superb characterizations, dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere, and driving plotting that have made him a household name.

Federal marshal Karen Sisco, from the bestselling novel Out of Sight, returns in "Karen Makes Out," once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business. In "Fire in the Hole," Raylan Givens, last seen in Riding the Rap and Pronto, meets up with an old friend, but they're now on different sides of the law. In the title story, "When the Women Come Out to Dance," Mrs. Mahmood gets more than she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her unhappy marriage. In all nine stories -- each unique in their own right -- reluctant heroes and laid-back lowlifes struggle for power, survival, and their fifteen minutes of fame. And as always, the stories ring true with Leonard's signature deadpan social observations and diabolical eye for the foibles of the good guys and the bad.

Although I am a huge fan of FX’s “Justified” series, I’m not really an avid fiction reader and never gave Elmore Leonard’s books much thought. Leonard’s passing in 2013 certainly revealed the universal respect and appeal people had for his work and made me wonder what I was missing. I chose WHEN THE WOMEN COME OUT TO DANCE mainly because it was a published before the “Justified” series and free of the show’s hype … just a book with 9 short stories; one which happens to be the basis for the incredible television series. I didn’t even reach the “Justified” story before I fully understood the attraction to Leonard’s story-telling.

Each chapter represents one story and range from 5 to 50+ pages. “Fire in the Hole” is the one I really wanted to read as it introduces the world to the cool, calm and deadly Raylan Givens and his arch-nemesis, life-long criminal Boyd Crowder. It’s not “Justified” in a nutshell, but merely the first episode of the series (with a different outcome). If anything, the book remarkably confirms how dead-on the series presents Leonard’s vision … both the storyline and the characters. While I certainly enjoyed that particular story, I found most of the others to be better. Leonard had a knack of being able paint an elaborate tableau with relatively few words that gets readers involved. Real page-turners filled with drama, suspense and a variety of interesting characters of all calibers (good and bad). One of the reasons I really don’t enjoy fiction is verbosity, but Leonard’s stories never become mired in words, they all roll smoothly and at a decent pace. I found myself immersed in each and every chapter and refused to part from the book until I’d finished the story I’d started. Another enjoyable factor is that each chapter presents readers with a change-up (and puns aside, “Chickasaw Charlie Hoke” was one of my favorites) in terms of theme, mood and era (some stories are current, some not). The longer chapters (“Karen Makes Out”, “Fire in the Hole” and “Tenkiller”) take time to develop, but build excitement along the way and certainly deliver in the end.

WHEN THE WOMEN COME OUT TO DANCE proved to be the perfect appetizer for me to start a steady diet of Elmore Leonard books … I’m hooked.

What else is there to say but "Elmore Leonard"? You're either familiar with his outstanding writing or you should be. Most will be familiar with the television series "Justified" and Leonard wrote the story the series is based on, so that should turn several new generations of readers on to him. (Leonard also wrote the stories for the John Travolta movie "Get Shorty" and a great old Burt Reynolds' movie "Stick") If you like great writing, if you're looking for great crime fiction, noir, and just good old fashion crime/criminal character stories, Elmore Leonard is your man.

I bought this alongside a copy of his western short stories. Those are interesting because you can see his voice emerging from what is otherwise generic pulp western. These stories are more in the vein of justified and get shorty. Heavy on dialogue, grey in moral and deep on character, these are complex people who never start the things they do with the word "Suddenly." A particular highlight for me was the dialogue driven tale of the woman whose house burned down, but every story in here has its merit and its own surprising depth.

In the New York Times, I read Leonard's obituary. In it, the writer emphasized that Leonard believe in spare-to-no descriptions, believing that action and dialogue are sufficient vehicles to tell the story. As an amateur short story writer, I had developed the same guidelines, which I call organic plot development, and I wanted to discover how he did it. In a word: Wonderfully. I learned a great deal and I shall revisit his stories often. Those of you who aren't writers but instead are the most important people of all: readers: These are widely varied and entertaining stories. Enjoy!

This is a great assortment of short stories. Leonard always amazes me. I especially loved the last story, Tenkiller. I live near the area where the story takes place in Oklahoma. If someone had given me the story to read without telling me who wrote it, I would have been certain the author was from Oklahoma. But he's not obviously, and that amazes me that he understands the people and the area so well. I don't have enough good things to say about this book. Just read it.

Wonderful collection of short stories....every one unique....every one a winner. The characters are memorable and the plots are absorbing. I was happy to find a video stream series "Justified" based on a character in one of the stories.

I got turned on to Elmore Leonard from watching the TV show "Justified" (which is fantastic, by the way). This book contains several short stories, including "Fire in the hole", which the TV-show is based on.

Mr. Leonard paints a very vivid picture in a very easy to read way. His writing has a certain amount of 'cool' to it, and every character is well-defined and interesting in their own way. I did some research on him, and I see why he was a 'writer's writer'. His prose and pacing are to be admired.

This will be the start of a journey through the rest of his works for me. I loved every bit of this book.
This book is awesome! I purchased it because I'm a big fan of the show, "Justified". The dialogue in the book reminds me so much of the show. I can just picture Boyd Crowder saying some of this stuff. My uncle always told me Elmore Leonard was the master of dialogue, boy was he right.

Outstanding book, makes me want to leave work early so I can go read. Man, I sound like a nerd right now...
