»Since Chandler is so famous, you can find criticism of his work. I haven’t found much criticism of Thomas; people say that he is great and underrated and leave it at that. Probably his place in 20-century literature is reasonably secure but it would be nice to get him a little more respect. It doesn’t matter that Thomas doesn’t always provide a satisfying dénouement. He provides voice, subtle perception, history, and a passionate but cynical love of politics unrivaled by any other author in the genre.«
