Can’t remember where I got this copy but it looks great. I first read Chandler at university (better to learn how to drink scotch and wear a hat than study chemistry anyway).His one liners are brilliant.
A blonde, the kind of blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window.
He lit a cigarette that tasted like a plumber’s handkerchief.
Just reading a few choice lines made me smile. Best of all Chandler now has a new fan and he sits just across the desk from me. The Big Sleep – good place to start, Tim.
For now I’m following the wreckage Moose Malloy has left in his wake…
