The Big Sleep
I've been enjoying reading so much about Raymond Chandler and his writing recently that when I saw this title in The University Book Shop for the miserly sum of $12.99 I simply couldn't resist. Especially when the first thing written on the back cover is the quote...
"Neither of the two people in the room paid any attention to the way I came in, although only one of them was dead."
Then when I was googling to find the right cover image I came across this article which talks about an Los Angeles Raymond Chandler tour.
I wonder if they'll ever have a Vanda Symon Dunedin tour, for all the interesting places I've dumped bodies and had, er, slightly dramatic events? Time will tell.
The met service have issued a heavy snow warning for Dunedin overnight. Lets see if they get it right this time!
