Elmore Leonard long sentence- Guest Post by Andrew Joyce…

This is a quick post script to an article I wrote last week about really long and well written sentences. (You can find it HERE) If you’re a writer, you gotta love this.

“The chauffeurs were not watching with purpose, though they were looking out of darkness toward the source of the music, across flower beds and shrubbery to the club patio strung with paper lanterns where ladies in long skirts danced with men in blazers and pastel trousers to medleys of show tunes: some barely moving, some moving as though they were following footprints, some of the ladies discoing with studied abandon while their men, with glazed expressions, glasses reflecting the lantern glow, hunched their shoulders and sometimes snapped their fingers.”Elmore Leonard from the novel Stick
