Nifty: Ian Fleming and Raymond Chandler

July 25, 2011

Ian Fleming and Raymond Chandler via BBC 1958Carolyn Kellogg‘s reflection on Raymond Chandler at Jacket Copy includes this gem:

… writer Geoff Nicholson sent me a link to an amazing 1957 interview between Ian Fleming and Raymond Chandler on the BBC. It was the first time I’d heard Chandler speak, a strange and marvelous experience. He’s a little moody, a little distracted, and quite possibly drunk. The two were, apparently, sitting in the same studio in England.

Yeah. Click that link. It is about twenty-five minutes long. Absolutely fascinating.
