"From 30 feet away she looked like a lot of class. From 10 feet away she looked like something made up to be seen from 30 feet away."

Great writer.

Huge Chandler fan. Was revisiting The Big Sleep not too long ago. I think the subtext in the books - flame away - is that Marlowe and/or Chandler - maybe neither swished when they walked but I think they may have still swung from the other side of the plate. Flame away. Something just ain’t being played right down the middle there.

23 July 1888, crime novelist Raymond Chandler - creator of Philip Marlowe - was born in Chicago.

Today, Phillip Marlow would look at the CRIME RATE of Chicago and quit, saying that Chicago is a fictional town.

Either that, or Philip Marlow would be a gay, Transgender P.I.

"DATA!"

"Sorry, sir."

When I first arrived in LA, reading Chandler helped me understand the place.
