The Big Sleep

by Chandler, Raymond

The Big Sleep is a crime novel by Raymond Chandler, the first in his acclaimed series about hardboiled detective Philip Marlowe. The work has been adapted twice into film, once in 1946 starring Humphry Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and again in 1978 starring Robert Mitchum. The story is noted for its complexity and is heavily influenced by classic Greek tragedy, with many characters double-crossing each other and many secrets being exposed throughout the narrative. -

First Edition Identification and Notes

 First edition published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1939. Stated first edition on the copyright page and $2.00 price point on the dust jacket. The initial edition barely sold 13,000. It was not until after the 1946 film that the novel gained in popularity.
