Bonjour! Jackson Burnett...

You're very welcome!...

Which of the Raymond Chandler novels is your favorite?

Well, a family member, "introduced"  me to author Raymond Chandler's novels...and since I have only read two Of his novels I would have to say "Farewell, My Lovely," and "The Little Sister." [ I Of course, prefer the former book over the latter.]

Now, to turn the table a bit and let me ask you, which is your favorite Chandler novel? and merci, for the compliment ...too!

deedee gauzot :-D
