Shakespeare in Baby Talk: Raymond Chandler in the Village
He also wrote this in a 1954 letter to Hamish Hamilton about imagined neglected authors:
...And there was Aaron Klopstein. Who ever heard of him? He committed suicide at the age of 33 in Greenwich Village by shooting himself with an Amazonian blow gun, having published two novels entitled Once More the Cicatrice and The Sea Gull Has No Friends, two volumes of poetry, one book of short stories and a book of critical essays entitled Shakespeare in Baby Talk.
From Raymond Chandler Speaking, University of California Press, 1997.
Chandler's birthday is July 23.
