To say goodbye is to die a littleThere are some books that just feel good to have on your dashboard never too far from your fingertips to read in the tiny gaps between obligations and responsibility The type of book that rides shotgun and keeps you company through the darker hours through lonely nights at a shady laundromat or booze soaked rainstorms on your porch Raymond Chandler s The Long Goodbye is that sort of book that sort of friend The past few months have seen some bleak times and I ve been on a Chandler kick to press through them Of all the Marlowe adventures this was the one that stands out like a lighthouse in a storm telling an unforgettable tale of murder and mystery Chandler took noir to soaring heights of literary acceptance with his works joining Dashiell Hammett as an essential author of the genre and The Long Goodbye leaves an eternal mark on the face of literature even so that the upbeat and hardboiled The Big Sleep that kicked off the Phillip Marlowe novel series and inspired fantastic films such as The Big Lebowski Goodbye is a novel for hard times hard drinking hard living an aged and cynical than ever Marlowe proves he s worth his salt in honoring the memory of a short lived but impactful friendship with Terry Lennox Lennox a war hero alcoholic has been a victim of either suicide or arranged murder in a small Mexican town while on the lam escaping an accusation for murder of his rich wife and Marlowe will stop at nothing to see through the doors slammed shut by political power and fear and discover the truth While a bit bloated this is a novel of near perfection in the mystery genre that is guaranteed to keep you up at night gladly dropping uarters for another dryer cycle in order to keep reading because a mystery with Marlowe is about as good as life getsTo label this novel perfection would be to bastardize any opinions on the literature widely accepted by the academy that I ve previously championed and praised but few novels have felt like a better friend in hard times than The Long Goodbye Or perhaps it s just that I like occupying Marlowe s headspace I even named my new cat after him upon completion of The Big Sleep Marlowe is the type of man you wish you were but not one you d want to spend time with He is fearless and devoted nearly to a fault unafraid to play the asshole to get what he wants He swims upon his moods and cherishes those moments of getting right up in someones face just to drown out a bad feeling or ascertain the truth He calls everyone out on their bullshit and possesses a moral compass so strong that nobody besides himself seems to be worth a damn Pushy and thorny Marlowe is the hero for me Reading a Chandler novel is much like geeking out on the old John Wayne films I d watch with my father as a child particularly True Grit There are the pitfalls of blatant misogyny racism particularly towards Latin Americans in this one which with my love of Latin American literature was particularly not cool and cornball dated humor but it is honestly very easy to overlook when the plot is that engaging the writing that cool and the novel so entertaining How can you not love a novel with a passage like this Alcohol is like loveThe first kiss is magic the second is intimate the third is routine After that you take the girl s clothes off This is the sort of novel that keeps you pouring a glass along with Marlowe perhaps is that what they mean by an active reader one who empathizes with the character and drinks when he drinks and despite being a pot boiler of a thriller never insults the intellect The twists are fresh and the writing crisp Granted the novel is a bit bloated and some elements may raise the really eyebrow of critiue but on the whole it works It is easy to consider many bits as cliche in the modern day but important to remember that it was Chandler that invented it before it became cliche There is also a really charming self consciousness to this novel with regards to the writing Why did I go into such detail Marlowe asks of himself because the charged atmosphere made every little thing stand out as a performance The writing truly fits the scene and the PI narrator While in most novels it would be easy to sneer at a lengthy passage on the physical description and dress of a character as they first walk on the scene here it is at home since Marlowe would need to analyze a fresh face for all they are worth to build a profile of them uickly in order to interact with them and press for the goal Chandler has a true gift for dialogue and character mannerisms as well creating a wide engaging cast He was a guy who talked with commas like a heavy novel he says at one point and the dialogue of each character is always brilliantly nuanced There is even a wonderful sense of satire on authors present with Chandler poking fun at top selling authors who write for profit and not for artistic merit as is shown with Roger Wade The continuous satire and critiue of Hollywood and California that permeates Chandler s novels comes alive in comical form with the desert sobering up clinic and the mentally challenged guard who cannot separate his fantasy role playing of cowboys and tough guys from reality On the surface it is easy to scoff at these scenes but Chandler plays for something deeperIt is fascinating to have read Chandler grow as a writer and to see his characters develop and age over time Like a racoon Marlowe has grown older and meaner and tougher but all the honorable strong willed and fearless Maybe I was tired and irritable Maybe I felt a little guilty I could learn to hate this guy without even knowing him I could just look at him across the width of a cafeteria and want to kick his teeth in The relationship between him and Ohl has soured a bit both of them really elbowing the other in the ribs with force and sadistic pleasure with Ohl no longer a chain smoker but constantly rubbing an unlit cigarette between his lips What has not changed is the insight into Los Angeles and Hollywood blossoming now into subtle jabs of social insight with Marlowe looking down at all the socialites as their sins and flaws seem to define them The Long Goodbye reads almost like a western where the territory is wild and untamed and crime running rampant not as a driving force but as a symptom of the American lifestyle we have let cultivate itself Power and greed and evil are seen here as byproducts of a society ruled by its own fear and vice and Marlowe must navigate these deadly waters to uphold the good names of himself and those he cares about The Long Goodbye is a cornerstone of noir and mystery that rises above any genre into simply being a beautiful piece of literature A searing social critiue orchestrated with dazzling plot twists enviable dialogue prowess and a firm grounding in doing what is right simply because it is right Chandler has created a masterpiece that is just as potent today as it was when first written This is the sort of novel that scratches an itch of being both a fluff read and an intellectual endeavour there must be a term for this somewhere and grabs the reader by the throat and heart and won t let go until the final heart wrenching few lines Plus the Robert Altman film starring Elliott Gould is fantastic though not a perfect adaption it still works and rivals even Chinatown as a masterpiece of noir cinema This novel was a true comfort on many a dark night and it was sad to see it end Marlowe is a true literary hero and one I won t ever forget455 Out there in the night of a thousand crimes people were dying being maimed cut by flying glass crushed against steering wheels or under heavy tires People were being beaten robbed strangled raped and murdered People were hungry sick bored desperate with loneliness or remorse or fear angry cruel feverish shaken by sobs A city no worse than others a city rich and vigorous and full of pride a city lost and beaten and full of emptinessIt all depends on where you sit and what your own private score is I didn t have one I didn t careI finished the drink and went to bed While there is plenty of drinking to be had finish this novel without wanting to go order a gimlet I dare you Chandler does well to also add an air of caution to the intake of alcohol To drink in moderation is one thing but the horrors of alcoholism and excess make up a major portion of the novel A man who drinks too much on occasion is still the same man as he was sober An alcoholic a real alcoholic is not the same man at all You can t predict anything about him for sure except that he will be someone you never met before

enough bucks to catch a bus to Las Vegas where a job awaits Terry reappears in Marlowe s life married to Sylvia Potter the daughter of publishing magnate Harlan Potter Not long after Terry appears on

three days in jail The cops let him go when Lennox is located in a small mountain town in Mexico with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head Marlowe doesn t believe Terry would kill himself either I thought about Terry Lennox in a detached sort of way He was already receding into the distance white hair and scarred face and weak charm and his peculiar brand of pride I didn t judge him or analyze him just as I had never asked him uestions about how he got wounded or how he ever happened to get himself married to anyone like Sylvia He was like somebody you meet on board a cruise ship and get to know very well and never really know at all He was gone like the same fellow when he says goodbye at the pier and let s keep in touch old man and you know you won t and he won t Likely
