Raymond Chandler's Map to LA. City Guide & Map by Herb Lester
Raymond Chandler's Map to LA. City Guide & Map by Herb Lester.
This is a guide to Chandler's world and that of his noble alter-ego, the private detective Philip Marlowe. It mixes locations from the books, the films and Chandler’s personal life. There’s the crummy dive where Moose Malloy went looking for Velma (Farewell, My Lovely); the actual lounge where Marlowe and Terry Lennox ordered gimlets (The Long Goodbye); the top-floor suite where oil executive Chandler got his priceless education in how a dirty, sun-drenched city really operated.
It’s an insider's guide to the city Chandler knew, and can still be visited today.
An invaluable tool to have on hand, and a souvenir worth framing.
