Oh, to have only just found Chandler. He's the writer virtually all young American writers once wanted to be, and I'll bet there are still a lot coming up feeling the same way. His Los Angeles never existed but he created one so real and so vital and so down and dirty yet full of promise for a guy who never makes a buck, yet never soils his true hard heart. I adore Philip Marlowe.

I'm an eclectic of the most eccentric sort. I read everything, usually the same kind of thing for ages until I run out, and then find someone or something else to devour. Right now I'm avoiding the sad rush for rubbish like Tolle and veering off into a world of truly interesting spiritual adventures. A few months from now I'll be into ripping yarns. And when I find a book to enthuse over I shout about it until I'm hoarse. Have no idea if it does any good. Chandler, oh yes. Every word he wrote, even when he got older and tired of writing. And The Secret Magdalene. I don't think that one's a flavor of the month. I think it's a classic.

Fun talking with you.
