‘Tom Williams is the third and best biographer of Chandler…[A Mysterious Something In The Light is] Packed, insightful, entertaining’Marcel Berlins, The Times
‘Outstanding… Williams writes sensitively about the Cissy relationship
and delves illuminatingly into the composition of Chandler’s
masterpieces… thanks to his biography Chandler himself is a less
mysterious something than he was.’
John Carey, The Sunday Times
‘There’s so much here that’s interesting and poignant… his story is sad beyond words.’
Sam Leith, The Spectator
‘Like a dutiful nephew, or even like Philip Marlowe dealing with General
Sternwood in The Big Sleep, [Tom Williams] discloses all while judging
nothing… Precise, kindly and necessary’
Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
