Raymond Chandler (1888 - 1959)

Today is the birthday of Raymond Chandler. Gimlets will be served at sundown.
“I am a writer, and there comes a time when that which I write has to belong to me, has to be written alone and in silence, with no one looking over my shoulder, no one telling me a better way to write it. It doesn’t have to be great writing, it doesn’t even have to be terribly good. It just has to be mine.”
–Raymond Chandler
