Synopses & Reviews
Reissued for the 50th anniversary of the film of Chandler's novel, The Big Sleep, this evocative and elegant book juxtaposes excerpts of Chandler's tough, cynical prose with black-and-white photographs of the city he described as "no worse than others, a city rich and vigorous and full of pride, a city lost and beaten and full of emptiness". 100 photos.
This atmospheric tribute to the writer and his city is a visionary photographic journey across the city, accompanied by passages from Chandler's greatest works. Review coverage expected in the film, photography and associated press.
