Chandler: Stories and Early Novels (Library of America #80) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Library of America is dedicated to publishing America's best and most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as the "finest-looking, longest-lasting editions ever made" (The New Republic), Library of America volumes make a fine gift for any occasion. Now, with exactly one hundred volumes to choose from, there is a perfect gift for everyone.

In Chandler's hands, the pulp crime story became a haunting mystery of power and corruption, set against a modern cityscape that is both lyrical and violent.

"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

Synopsis:

Stories and Early Novels includes every story that Chandler did not later incorporate into a novel — thirteen in all. Drawn from the pages of Black Mask and Dime Detective, these stories show how Chandler adapted the violent conventions of the pulp magazines — with their brisk exposition and rapid-fire dialogue — to his own emerging vision of 20th-century America. Raymond Chandler: Stories and Early Novels contains a newly researched chronology of Chandler's life, explanatory notes, and an essay on the texts.
