Notebooks of Raymond Chandler by Raymond Chandler

Book Description

During a period of twenty years from his start as a young writer for H. L. Mencken s classic pulp magazine The Black Mask in the early 1930s, through the publication of his novels The Big Sleep and Farewell, My Lovely , to his career as a Hollywood screenwriter in the 1940s Raymond Chandler kept a series of private notebooks. Drawn from those journals, The Notebooks of Raymond Chandler offers an intimate view of the writer at work, revealing early ideas, descriptions, and anecdotes that would later be used in The Long Goodbye, The Blue Dahlia , and other classics. Filled with both public and private writings, The Notebooks of Raymond Chandler includes Marlowesque particulars such as pickpocket lingo, San Quentin jailhouse slang, a Note on the Tommygun, and musings on Craps. Here, too, are surprising, lesser known essays on Hollywood, the mystery story, British and American writing, and a wicked parody of Hemingway. This sampler by turns whimsical, provocative, irreverent, and fascinating also contains a list of possible story titles; Chandlerisms; and his short work English Summer: A Gothic Romance, which the writer viewed as a turning point in his career.

Philip Marlowe is hired by wheelchair-bound General Sternwood to discover who is indulging in some petty blackmail. A weary, old man, Sternwood just wants the problem to go away. But Marlowe finds he has his work cut out just keeping Sternwood's wild, devil-may-care daughters out of trouble as they prowl LA's dirtiest and darkest streets.
