The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler

The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler

 

"This book contains the single best sentence ever written about coffee: 'I went out into the kitchen to make coffee - yards of coffee. Rich, strong, bitter, boiling hot, ruthless, depraved.  The life-blood of tired men.' If Chandler can write that well about your morning cup, just imagine what he has to say about the human condition.  Noir at its best and Philosophically interesting."  - Recommended by Wayne
