"With his classic novels and stories featuring the hardboiled private detective Philip Marlowe, Raymond Chandler transformed the detective story and became one of the most iconic and imitated writers of the twentieth century. But despite the fame he attained through best-selling books such as The Big Sleep and The Long Goodbye, as well as the screenplay for such groundbreaking film noir as Double Indemnity, he remained an intensely private man throughout his life. As he lived a quiet existence darkened by his wife's recurring illnesses and his struggles with alcoholism, Chandler's letters were his sole connection to his friends, fans and publishers - and fellow writers from Ian Fleming to Somerset Maugham." "In The Raymond Chandler Papers, Chandler biographers Tom Hiney and Frank MacShane bring together a new selection of his correspondence - much of it never before made public - that reveals all aspects of his powerful personality, artistic sensibility, and broad intellectual curiosity."--Jacket

Collected stories of John O'Hara by John O'Hara( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here are 36 of the finest American short stories the 20th century has yet seen by a writer whose mastery of the genre has influenced an entire generation. John O'Hara created whole, complex worlds in as few as a thousand words. Wonderfully compelling and dazzlingly detailed, his stories are rich with plot alone. But people are the heart of such diverse tales as "The Doctor's Son," "Over the River and Through the Wood," and "Imagine Kissing Pete." With an unerring ear for dialogue and a keen eye for the nuances of class, character and manners, O'Hara presents an idiosyncratic vision of basic human drives. His astonish range encompasses the cafe society of New York, Hollywood's star makers, and the simpler folk of Pennsylvania country. Spanning the work of three decades, this volume offers the best of a long, prolific and distinguished career. --Book jacket

Raymond Chandler : le gentleman de Californie by Frank MacShane( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Même si son oeuvre ne tient qu'en une dizaine de livres et que ceux-ci se retrouvent dans la formule du roman criminel, on est en droit de considérer Raymond Chandler comme un écrivain américain important et capital. On revivra, grâce à cet ouvrage digne d'une enquête de ##Philip Marlowe##, les différentes étapes (jeunesse anglaise, problèmes littéraires, collaborations cinématographiques) de cette vie très romantique d'un créateur qui, admiré par ses pairs pour son intransigeante honnêteté et son exigeante franchise, fut "cannibalisé" par son oeuvre
