It doesn't look like this is out in Canada yet, but I'll get it as soon as I see it. Who could pass up Chandler's drunken, late-night ramblings to a Mexican secretary? Interesting to see Chandler's two biographers collaborating, too.

From what the review says, though, the collection of Hammett's letters that William Nolan and Jo Hammett are doing will probably be much better. I'm really looking forward to that.
