Overview

Il grande sonno by Raymond Chandler

“Cosa importa dove si giace quando si è morti? In fondo a uno stagno melmoso o in un mausoleo di marmo alla sommità di una collina? Si è morti, si dorme il grande sonno e ce ne si fotte di certe miserie. L’acqua putrida e il petrolio sono come il vento e l’aria per noi. Si dorme il grande sonno senza preoccuparsi di essere morti male, di essere caduti nel letame. Quanto a me, ne condividevo una parte pure io, di quel letame, ora.” Il primo romanzo in cui compare l’investigatore Philip Marlowe.

About the Author

Nobody but Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) could have created a private eye hero as cool as Philip Marlowe, but writers have been trying ever since the author's precedent-setting crime novels were published. Chandler wrote seven complete novels during his lifetime, with his first novel, The Big Sleep, debuting in 1939. Three of his novels are considered major literary works outside of the crime fiction genre: Farewell, My Lovely, The Little Sister, and The Long Goodbye. All but one of his novels were turned into movies, some several times.
