Chandler, Raymond: The Long Goodbye V1, 05 Apr 2010

The sixth in the Philip Marlowe series, The Long Goodbye is significant not only as the last book Raymond Chandler wrote but as a personal consummation of craft that brought his detective novels into the realm of distinguished fiction. "The first time I laid eyes on Terry Lennox he was drunk in a Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith outside the terrace of The Dancers" [p. 3], Marlowe explains in an extraordinary opening line that establishes wealth, trouble, and the central figure of conflict in the story. Taking pity on Lennox, Marlowe brings him home to sober up. They begin a casual friendship, meeting for gimlets at Victor's; Marlowe learns that the scars on his face are mortar wounds and that he is married to the promiscuous daughter of multimillionaire Harlan Potter. Something in Lennox's character interests Marlowe, enough that he doesn't question why Lennox is asking for help getting to Mexico right after his wife has been brutally murdered. Marlowe does help, and is arrested and jailed. When Lennox turns up a suicide with a signed confession in Otatocl‡n, it gets Marlowe out of jail, but it does not get Lennox out of his life.

Thank you for this. I've been reading it and noticed that there is a long section in Chapter 15 that is incorrectly italicized, after the words per diem.

You never did update the topic to update the date and the version. Also, did you keep note of how many downloads V1.0 had? So you can edit the first post to say?

When you post a book, it's version 1.0. Depending on how significant the reason for making changes is, the next version could be 1.1 or 2.0. So the topic needs to be updated to show this. Plus it needs the date changed so we know when it was posted. Also, you keep track of how many views the version you are replacing has and edit the first post to say how many views that version had. That keeps track of how the book is doing.
