A Mysterious Something


A new biography of Raymond Chandler has been published in the UK. The subhead in the title is inspired by a line near the end of Chandler's first novel, The Big Sleep:
Outside the bright gardens had a haunted look, as though small wild eyes were watching me from behind the bushes, as though the sunshine itself had a mysterious something in its light.
Check out my Q&A with the book's author, Tom Williams, over on crime fiction blog The Rap Sheet.
