Stories and early novels by Raymond Chandler( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 2,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes 13 of the stories written by American novelist and screenwriter Raymond Chandler (1888-1959), that were not included in any of his full-length novels. Typically, his short stories chronicle the cases of Philip Marlowe and other down-on-their-luck private detectives or Good Samaritans. These stories reflect how Chandler adapted the violent conventions of the pulp magazines - with their brisk exposition and rapid-fire dialog - to his own emerging vision of 20th-century America. This work also contains a newly researched chronology of Chandler's life, explanatory notes, and an essay on the texts
