Description

In 1976, critic Paul Nelson spent several weeks interviewing legendary detective writer Ross Macdonald, who elevated the form to a new literary level. â oeWe talked about everything imaginable, ⠝ Nelson wroteâ "including Macdonaldâ (TM)s often meager beginnings; his dual citizenship; writers, painters, music, and movies he admired; The Great Gatsby, his favorite book; how he used symbolism to change detective writing; and more. This book, published in a handsome, oversized format, collects these unpublished interviews and is a visual history of Macdonaldâ (TM)s professional career. It is illustrated with rare and select items from one of the worldâ (TM)s largest private archives of Macdonald ephemera; reproduces, in full color, the covers of the various editions of Macdonaldâ (TM)s more than two dozen books; collects facsimile reproductions of select pages from his manuscripts, as well as magazine spreads; and presents rare photos, many never before seen.

Review quote

A lush coffee table book filled with a dizzying array of graphic materials: countless images of various covers of Macdonald's novels, clips of his magazine articles, reproductions of parts of his personal letters, pictures of some of the books from his collection, posters advertising the films made from his novels, and on and on.
