"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

Stories and early novels by Raymond Chandler( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 80 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

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

4 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in French and held by 41 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
