»The Long Goodbye is hardly a murder mystery–the death that moves the plot forward happens off stage and Marlowe never even sees the body–and yet it has captured the imagination of millions of readers over the last 60 years. Why? Because Chandler wanted to write something that wasn’t bound by the rules of the mystery genre, but he found himself enmeshed in its rules anyway, because of Philip Marlowe.«
