"Chandler's ability to bring a scene to life on the page has few peers. His characters are memorable and characteristic of the era and his analogies are spot on. I recommend this book to anyone unfamiliar with Chandler and place this book on my highly recommended list."

About Raymond Chandler

Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) published his first story in 1933 in the pulp magazine Black Mask. By the time he published his first novel, The Big Sleep in 1939, featuring, as did all his major works, the iconic private eye Philip Marlowe, it was clear that he had not only mastered a genre but had set a standard to which others could only aspire. In addition to his short stories, he published only seven novels during his life. He created a body of work that ranks with the best of twentieth-century literature and at his death had established himself as the finest crime writer in America.
