Judith Freeman, author of The Long Embrace: Raymond Chandler and the Woman He Loved.
“This elegant, stirring book plumbs a great mystery, one hidden, from even Chandler’s many devoted readers, in plain sight. Freeman’s book is a meditation on marriage, a persuasive biographical and literary study, and, best of all, one of those rare books, like Nicholson Baker’s U and I or Geoff Dyer’s Out of Sheer Rage, where one writer’s study of another takes the form of a confessional fugue on the writing act itself.” - Jonathan Lethem

Another fine show! Sounds like Judith Freeman's book is a must for any fan of Raymond Chandler. Happy MLK, Jr. day!
