I can wholeheartedly concur with your last comment. The writing can sometimes seem to have a whiff of lavender. Beyond that - all his basically speculation and in the eye of the beholder. Certainly alcohol played a part as you point out.

You are impelling me to dig out and reread Chandler. Although many of his literary contemporaries shine brighter, Chandler's creation of the hard-boiled detective had a more enduring impact on American popular culture, traceable in everything from The Rockford Files to Blade Runner to Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Brick.
