Post-mortem on Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles

Marlowe Memorial Chess Set, Hotel Barclay, as featured in The Little Sister

Yesterday, Esotouric debuted the tour Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles: In A Lonely Place, and it was a wild, psycho-geographical portrait of Chandler’s life, work and locales, and those of his alter-ego Marlowe. Here’s a little photographic sampling of some scenes along the way.

Tai Kim’s Bacon Caramel gelato, served up at Scoops in honor of hard-boiled meat-eating men of lore, was a revelation! Nicotine gelato was a fever dream (especially when the little kids kept gobbling sample spoons while their dad ignored them). Mint, Lime & Pear Sorbet was delish. And we raffled off copies of Denise Hamilton’s new Los Angeles Noir anthology to three lucky passengers, courtesy of the good folks at Akashic Press.

Sorry you missed it? There’s a repeat on July 21, and tix are already selling, so grab yours now.
