A Mysterious Something in the Light- The Life of Raymond Chandler by Tom Williams

“Tom Williams is the third and best biographer of Chandler. . . . [His] packed, insightful, entertaining biography will, I feel, be the last.” —(London)Times
The life of Raymond Chandler has long been obscured by secrets and half-truths as deceptive as anything in his novelThe Long Goodbye. Now, drawing on new interviews, previously unpublished letters, and archives, Tom Williams casts a new light on this mysterious writer, a man troubled by loneliness and desertion. It was only during middle age, after his alcoholism wrecked a lucrative career as an oilman, that Chandler seriously turned to crime fiction. And his legacy—the lonely, ambiguous world of Philip Marlowe—endures, compelling generations of crime writers. In this long-awaited biography, Tom Williams shadows one of the true literary giants of the twentieth century and considers how crime writing was raised to the level of art.
