No Comment Department

Book Deals: Week of December 16, 2013: Agent William Clark at William Clark Associates sold North American rights to The Annotated Big Sleep, edited by Owen Hill (author of The Chandler Apartments), Anthony Rizzuto (a bookseller/professor), and Pamela Jackson (co-editor of The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick). Edward Kastenmeier at Vintage acquired the book, which is an annotated, illustrated edition of Raymond Chandler’s celebrated noir novel. Clark said the book will draw on “the wealth of archival, biographical, social, and literary” background material available on Chandler’s classic, in order to “bring new life” to it.

Hat tip to Fred Zackel.

I doubt Chandler would approve.
