The 100 best novels: 'The Maltese Falcon'
»Raymond Chandler, who owes so much to Hammett, deserves the last word. He said of The Maltese Falcon: «If you can show me 20 books written approximately 20 years back that have as much guts and life now, I’ll eat them between slices of Edmund Wilson’s head.» Nearly 100 years later, the «guts and life» of Hammett’s prose still puts some of his etiolated heirs to shame.«
— Robert McCrum
