This is a collection but if I only read The Big Sleep I would consider it 'read.' Marlowe is an interesting character: a sort of self-aware Don Quixote who understands he inhabits a world were morals are for suckers yet continues to follow them. The following quote is revealing: "I looked down at the chessboard. The move with the knight was wrong. I put it back where I had moved it from. Knights had no meaning in this game. It wasn't a game for knights."
