Nolan sems to have captured quite a bit of the life of Kenneth Millar, an especially daunting challenge considering that the great mystery novelist prized his privacy. Anyone interested in Millar/Macdonald, mysteries or publishing should find this book as enlightening as it is readable.

Over thirty years ago, as a teenager, I happened to pick up a Lew Archer novel, since when I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and rereading Ross Macdonald/Kenneth Millar's remarkable and sustained literary creation. Ross Macdonald's consciousness seems to chime with my own and I found in Nolan's comprehensive narrative of Macdonald's life many fascinating revelations of Macdonald's inspirations and the parallels between his life and writing.

What a pleasure to see Tom Nolan's work in print. His extensive research and exaustive dedication comes thru in this impressive biography that took 16 years to complete.
