World of Raymond Chandler PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

World of Raymond Chandler free pdf "The World of Raymond Chandler" shows how Chandler precariously balanced the values of a classical English education against those of a fast-evolving America during the years before the Great War- how he adopted Los Angeles as his home after WWI, with Hollywood in turn adopting him (and adapting his works)- how his detective hero and alter ego Philip Marlowe evolved over the years- and, above all, what it is to be a writer, and in particular one writing in the other language of hardboiled fiction. Acclaimed biographer and historian Barry Day deftly interweaves images and text, using quotations from Chandler s novels, short stories, letters, and interviews, to craft a unique portrait of the mystery writer s life and times."
