For Fans of Raymond Chandler

A new story of Chandler has been discovered from the papers that he left behind. Read about it here:

Incidentally, this has made me want to (re)read a Chandler. The Long Goodbye is my favourite.

“You read about these situations in books but you don’t read the truth. When it happens to you, when all you have left is the gun in your pocket, when you are cornered in a dirty little hotel in a strange country, and have only one way out …there is nothing elevating or dramatic about it.”


Which one is yours?

  1. I heard about that new story, Neeru. I admit I've not (yet) read it, but I think it's fascinating that it's been found. I'm going to have to put it on my reading list!
