    Paperback ´ Raymond Chandler PDF Ù raymond free, chandler epub, Raymond Chandler PDFEPUBReading this biography I found myself coming to like Raymond Chandler than I thought I wouldThrough various articles I’d read I had come to the impression that Chandler the man was cantankerous rude and nothing like Philip Marlowe The very public recollections of Billy Wilder probably helped form that opinion as the two did really fall into a hatehate relationship with each other But the man I found in these pages seemed a kind and intelligent soul devoted to his wife who nonetheless struggled with terrible alcoholism An addiction he couldn’t uite bring himself to admit What’s there was a lot of Marlowe

    Paperback ´ Raymond Chandler PDF Ù raymond free, chandler epub, Raymond Chandler PDFEPUBRead this book starting with the last section as it describes Chandler's declining health and spiral into depression and alcohol Then I leap frogged about the book reading people or events mentioned in that section his relationship with the love of his life his wife Cissy working with Billy Wilder on Double Indemnity I delved into the section on his work of The Lady of the Lake a favorite film noir Very readable Hiney used Chandler's own words to describe events and people rather than using uotes to evidence Hiney's conclusions This techniue made the book read like a novel I particulary respected Hiney's section at the end proving Chandler was not a racist or misogynist Hiney's implication being that characters set in a certain time period will talk a certain way The character talks tha

    Paperback ´ Raymond Chandler PDF Ù raymond free, chandler epub, Raymond Chandler PDFEPUBHaving read most of the Phillip Marlowe series I am a big fan This is a well resourced and written factual bio about a complex genius Born in 1888 Chandler went to school in England moved to the US and tried being a poet at which he was extremely mediocre He was gifted at math and became in 3 4 months an accountant This was in the depression and he became wealthy working for a large oil company rising to an executive position He fell in love with and married Cissy who was twenty years his senior He got bored with his job and in a few years of hard drinking missed work affairs at work he was fired He becomes enchanted with the hard boiled mystery genre which is new at the time He is writing his first novel at fifty years of age A lot of insight into Chandler's iconoclastic world view his love of the genre and for the evolution of common speech in American English
