The prose is there, but the story’s a yawn. It was Chandler, in this book, that helped me to discover raimone I like these “literary” mystery books. Other writers seem to have the opposite trajectory. Twenty-four hours a day somebody is running, somebody else is trying to catch him.

Il condominio dove abita Marlowe a Westwood – sullo sfondo le sue belle vicine di casa. In chapter 13 we see a run of casual racism and misogyny in Marlowe’s thoughts, and feel a certain bitterness in Chandler’s prose. In one way cops are all the same. The Long Goodbye reads almost like a western where the territory is wild and untamed and crime running rampant not as a driving force but as a symptom of the American lifestyle we have let cultivate itself.
