Angels Over America

The Big Sleep and Look Homeward Angel


I just finished reading Look Homeward Angel by Thomas Wolfe. It was a monumental mountain of beautiful prose. Now I turn my attention to a different sort of angel. A slumming angel. Of course I am speaking of none other than Raymond Chandler. I have read The Big Sleep before, but not the new annotated edition. Chandler’s prose is a bit more hard boiled than Wolfe’s but it is no less poetic. I can’t wait to get started!

  1. Look Homeward Angel, I’ll have to look into that as your description of it being a monumental mountain of beautiful prose makes me think it should go on my TBR list! I’ve never read an annotated version of a book before, it’ll be interesting to hear what you think of that and how it contributes to the main book itself. Happy reading! 🙂
