Austin Chronicle Book Club: 'The Long Goodbye'

Austin Chronicle Book Club: 'The Long Goodbye'

Closing out July Is Crime Month is the debut of the Austin Chronicle Book Club. You read the book, then join us online at a set time for a Twitter chat about it. The club kicks off with a crime fiction classic: The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler – the sixth novel featuring iconic gumshoe Philip Marlowe and Chandler's most ambitious and personal work, built around hard-drinking characters who bear more than a passing resemblance to the author. And when Marlowe isn't being roughed up by thugs or framed for crimes he didn't commit, he waxes philosophical about power, money, and corruption. It's noir lit at its blackest and bleakest. Share your ideas Monday, July 28, 7pm, at the Austin Chronicle Book Club Twitter Chat, #ACreads.
