Swag, By Elmore Leonard, Unabridged 5 Audio Cassettes, 6.5 Hours, Narrated By Frank Muller

"Swag begins a series introducting one of Elmore Leonard's more memorable characters: Ernest J. Stickley, Jr. Through the superb narrative telents of Frank Muller, the offbeat capers of this small-time car thief come vibrantly to life. When Stick joins a visionary car salesman, they enjoy instant success as a surprisingly efficient hold-up team. Pulling off a series of easy robberies, their apartment is soon cluttered with the rewards of their new trade. But if there is one lesson to be learned from Elmore Leonard's stories, it's that plans seldom stay on track for long. The life of crime is about to get a whole lot more unpredicatable for Stick and his partner. Filled with unexpected twists, Swag is a zany detour into a world where the line between heroes and villains becomes a blur. "… he gives us as much serious fun per word as anyone around."—New York Times Book Review "Library Journal calls Frank Muller "the best narrator in the business." "Copyright 1976 by Elmore Leonard.

Swag

Poetry. African American Studies. "The SWAG bus took a left on Empire Blvd. and landed in the kitchen of slick talk. What makes this collection remarkable is that while the title evokes the buck-buck braggadocio of Kings County, the poems navigate the quiet spaces that inhabit the schizophrenic scenery of Browne's beloved Brooklyn. Throughout the struggles, the pains and the triumphs, the poet finds a place where 'the joy the mess/ the body/ is most forgiving.' This is the swaggerful collision of craft and charisma. Boom"—Michael Cirelli.
