This omnibus contains Chandler's greatest works, and a spattering of wonderful novellas that are impossible to find anywhere else.

Although not known for his writing style, but more for the arc of his stories, I'm convinced there is no greater writer of human dialogue in the history of literature than Raymond Chandler.

His writing is so compulsively witty, desert dry and often terrifyingly heart-breaking that you can't help but fall in love with his characters and the world he wrote about, even if you can't always recall the stories themselves.

But the experience of reading Chandler is something you'll never have reading anyone else, and what an amazing experience it is. One of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, period.

Included novels: The Long Goodbye, Red Wind, Little Sister, Trouble is My Business + 3 novellas.
