Five top books on the life, work & legacy of Raymond Chandler

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on the life, work and legacy of Raymond Chandler:
The Raymond Chandler Papers
edited by Frank McShane and Tom Hiney

Chandler’s biographers Tom Hiney and Frank MacShane present this enlightening collection of the author’s correspondence and hitherto unpublished works of nonfiction. From a visceral account of the young Raymond’s experiences in WWI combat, to an unfinished profile of Mafia boss Lucky Luciano, these unique documents provide an eye-opening back story to Chandler’s wholly original fiction.
Read about another book on the list.
