Last year film audiences went “Searching for Sugar Man,” I did not. Maybe I missed something… you tell me.
Anyway, I am on my own personal mission. I am Searching for H.N. Swanson.
For those of you that have never heard of him, he was a legendary literary agent with great sensibilities. The man behind F. Scott Fitzgerald. Also landed a screenwriting contract for Raymond Chandler and discovered Elmore Leonard in the mid-50’s.
He had this to say: “He was a pup writing Westerns,” Swanson said. “I told him to forget the cowboy stuff and write stories with women in them. He did, and I made him a millionaire.”
He is gone, but not forgotten.
I will find him/her in 120 days…
