Along with Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler invented the modern detective novel. He was a master of the "wise-crack" and the foremost exponent of the tough-guy school of writing. Raymond was also a writer of distinction in a field where quality was not expected. Dismissed for his unpredictable drinking habits, the mad who revealed California's seamy side in novels such as The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye, and Farewell, My Lovely did not turn to fiction until the age of 44. He began with the pulps, and five years later tried his hand at novels. Within a few years the hero of his books, Philip Marlowe, had won a passionate international following [as] the tough but sentimental private eye. ... As Frank MacShane's entertaining biography shows, Raymond Chandler was the genuine article: a serious novelist who touched millions of readers. Drawing extensively on conversations with surviving members of the Chandler circle ... and from exclusive access to private correspondence and unpublished papers, Mr. MacShane's book is the first study of the life and times of this lively and influential literary figure. --From dust jacket

"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."--BOOK JACKET

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

"As another reminder of where we've come from and why we're still reading mysteries, The Library of America has put together two handsome volumes of Raymond Chandler's work -- guaranteed to bring a broad grin of acquisitive delight to the face of any recipient". -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
