Top Minds Read Top Books: Lynda La Plante

The award-winning and international best-selling author of crime fiction has kindly taken time out to share her thoughts on detective fiction writer, Raymond Chandler.

"My favourite author is Raymond Chandler. I know I should say Shakespeare, or one of the other classics, but I enjoy reading and re-reading Chandler as he makes me laugh out loud. His wit jumps off the page, and his ability to encapsulate a personality and character in a few lines is a lesson to every writer. He also has the most stunning titles for his books. As a reflection of his strength as a writer, many of his novels have been brilliantly transferred to the big screen."
