Fifty years ago today, Raymond Chandler died at the age of 70. On Legacy.com, Isaac Adamson (Kinki Lullaby, 2004), an author “owing no small debt to Mr. Chandler,” has written an essay called “The Slumming Angel“–worth reading as a way to remember the crime-fiction giant.
Better yet, take one of Chandler’s books off the shelf and read that.
Update: Talk about a synaptic misfire on my part. (Remember, I’m a book person, not a math person.) But since I’m not wrong, the headline stays!
