Raymond Chandler on Radio 4

February 3, 2011

A new series of, and on, Chandler is airing this week on Radio 4.
Read more about it here at the Radio 4 website.
But more importantly, please listen to Ian Fleming speaking to a clearly refreshed Chandler for the BBC on the above link. It is apparently the only recorded example of Chandler speaking about his work. The old boys do blow smoke up one another’s fundaments, but that ain’t no thing, just getting them together is good enough for me.
I love Chandler’s writing and the fact that it transfers so beautifully to radio, surely, in no small part down to the compelling nature of Marlowe’s character.
