I agree about Ross Macdonald being on the same level as Chandler and Hammett. I pre-ordered this book a while ago but haven't received my copy yet. I reread all 18 of the Archer novels a couple years ago and they held up to a rereading.
I agree, too. He's still one of my favorites.
Many thanks for posting this; a friend who's a Macdonald scholar will appreciate it, and the forthcoming book. Ross Macdonald's work has never made much of an impression on me, unfortunately, and I feel the poorer for it.
