Chandler's dark first novel is full of endlessly inventive wordplay, with the wry, cynical, private detective Philip Marlowe. Join the investigation with Jonathan Lethem (Gun, With Occasional Music
, and Fortress of Solitude
), Judith Freeman (The Long Embrace: Raymond Chandler and The Woman He Loved
), and Rich Cohen (Sweet and Low: A Family Story
) as they compare notes on Chandler's grand style, its place in the mystery canon, and its influence on their work.
