Offers a real insight into the author behind such classics as THE BIG SLEEP and FAREWELL MY LOVELY. Well worth reading by anyone who likes the American crime classics.

Most of the correspondence in this volume appeared in MacShane's 1981 "Selected Letters of...", but there are some nice additions, as well as Hiney's valuable commentary that accompanies the letters and puts them in context. The journalistic piece on the Academy Awards is good and shows Chandler's ambivalence about Hollywood, but the Lucky Luciano "interview" disappoints. All in all a good but not essential companion to the MacShane book.

raymond Chandler was a fascinating character...talented writer..alcoholic...loner..and, as would be expected..the letters he wrote during his chronic insomnia periods reveal much more about the personal predilcitions and attitudes of this solitary writer....
