Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles

Hosted by

Raymond Chandler’s dark vision of Los Angeles was as much a character in his novels as his hard-drinking, wise-cracking private eye Philip Marlowe. But one of L.A.’s most iconic writers was actually a transplant here. Chandler was born in Chicago and raised in Europe. We speak with the author of a new book that examines Chandler’s life and relationship with L.A. through his writings and letters.
