Description
Information
Raymond Chandler honed the dime-store detective story into prose that could pack a punch on modern fiction's mean streets - in the process writing some of the most admired novels of the last century. Awake late into the night with insomnia, Chandler also produced thousands of pages of correspondence covering a variety of subjects, all shot through with his unique insight and wit.

In this new selection we have Chandler's thoughts on his involvement with the Hollywood studios; his chronic alcoholism; the crime and mystery genre; California; life as a writer; the craft of writing; and, of course, his much imitated but never bettered creation, Philip Marlowe.

This is the perfect companion to Chandler's novels and also a fascinating account of the man himself - by himself.
