A dozen of his books have been adapted for film, including “Hombre,” “Out of Sight,” “Get Shorty,” and “Rum Punch,” which was made by Quentin Tarantino as “Jackie Brown.” A new book, “Road Dogs,” will be published next summer.

In April, she published “Wild Nights!,” a collection of short stories. She has received the National Book Award and the pen/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction and is the Roger S.
