Rate this:
Now regarded as one of the most important American novelists of the twentieth century, Raymond Chandler did not write his first book until the age of fifty, and even then he had to wait several years to gain any degree of recognition. Tom Hiney deftly traces Chandler's fascinating peregrinations -- from Nebraska to England to California -- and their profound effect upon his prose; he also provides a unique portrait of Chandler's reclusive later years as a successful author and his relationship with such figures as Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen Spender, and Ian Fleming.
