Inhaltsangabe: This North Point Press trade edition is based on the illustrated limited edition designed and produced by Arion Press. Arion "produces some of the most beautiful limited-edition books in the world," according to the New York Times. For the third in its series of classic detective novels, the Arion Press selected photographer Lou Stoumen to visualize the rich girls, hoodlums, and petty grifters with whom Chandler peopled Los Angeles in the 1940s. The characters were costumed and posed in the manner of motion picture publicity stills. The resulting photographs depict crucial events in the story, like a "paper movie", as Stoumen writes in his afterword. In designing The Big Sleep, Andrew Hoyem recalled modern styles current when the novel appeared half a century ago.
Review: "His thin, claw-like hands were folded loosely on the rug, purple-nailed. A few locks of dry white hair clung to his scalp, like wild flowers fighting for life on a bare rock." Published in 1939, when Raymond Chandler was 50, this is the first of the Philip Marlowe novels. Its bursts of sex, violence, and explosively direct prose changed detective fiction forever. "She was trouble. She was tall and rangy and strong-looking. Her hair was black and wiry and parted in the middle. She had a good mouth and a good chin. There was a sulky droop to her lips and the lower lip was full."
