Realism is flawed? I must have missed the Chandler works that fit this.
"Farewell, My Lovely" for example has too very strong female characters in it. He doesn't deal much with women, but then the stories are about Marlowe.

As wonderful a writer as Chandler was, like most of my favourite writers, he was extremely flawed - and his portrayal of female characters would have to be one of his greatest flaws. This is not at all unusual amongst the HB writers both of his time &, perhaps to a lesser extent, many of the HB writers of the 1950's also.
