The Long Goodbye is a novel by Raymond Chandler, published in 1953, his sixth novel featuring the private investigator Philip Marlowe. Some critics consider it inferior to The Big Sleep or Farewell, My Lovely, but others rank it as the best of his work. Chandler, in a letter to a friend, called the novel "my best book". The novel is notable for using hard-boiled detective fiction as a vehicle for social criticism and for including autobiographical elements from Chandler's life.

14. the long goodbye. In the early summer of 1972, an executive of Northrop Aircraft Company, whom I’ll call Fred Lawrence, invited me to dinner and offered me a terrific job. Ben, he said, we are planning to build a lightweight single-engine fighter. After that phone call, I received a message at home from General Stewart’s administrative assistant: Stewart was fed up dealing with Kelly Johnson, and so was the fighter command. As far as Tactical Air Command was concerned, the Skunk Works could go fly a bomber. We were out of the fighter business. Akin.

Goodbye and good luck, sir. I started up and drove back along the graveled road by the way I had come. By then I could call the Wade mansion in Idle Valley and be told the head of the household had returned to his domicile and all was gleaming bright for the time being

Goodbye and good luck, sir. I felt sad, but not quite as sad as Dr. Verringer would have liked me to feel. By then I could call the Wade mansion in Idle Valley and be told the head of the household had returned to his domicile and all was gleaming bright for the time being. Dr. Vukanich was easy. He was only half a dozen blocks down the line. But Dr. Varley was away to hell and gone in the Altadena hills, a long, hot, boring drive. Yes or no? The final answer was yes.

I read this book in two days. My mother is in the mid-to early late stage. This book was helpful to know what is coming in the future. Sometimes I think its hard now and hope I have the personal strength to deal with the future. I just left my mom, she doesn't know me but talks a mile a minute unceasingly about the past. It is all jumbled but there are bits and pieces of fact. May God bless you if you are dealing with this terrible cruel disease. This is a good book for all to read, caregivers and other family. Prayers!

This book is full of real life; so enjoyable to read; the kind you do not want to put down until you are done--and I didn't. Then it leaves you with thinking and feeling about the very important things in life around us, like those we love and care for every day.
I cried and I laughed throughout the entire book, and at the end I felt as though I had somehow shared part of the authors road with her for a brief time. She was so vulnerable with all that she walked through in her own personal experience with caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's. I really appreciated that about this book.
The author did an outstanding job presenting the reality of Alzheimer's from a medical standpoint, as well as that of being a family member affected by the disease. Then she walks you through the role of being the actual caregiver. Wow!
Being a health care professional myself, I felt the facts and new insights that were presented in this book were excellent. It is a great resource for those working with Alzheimer patients and for any person who has been called to the care of their own loved one with Alzheimer's. It was a beautiful illustration of laying one's own life down and all that entails. It is a challenge to those dealing with caring for their own ill loved one, as well a great source of encouragement!
I highly recommend this book to health professionals dealing with Alzheimer's, and the friends and most of all, families, of those whose lives this tragic disease has struck. You will not regret the time devoted to this very meaningful book.

A very informative book written without the medicinal coldness of medical terminology. A truly real life journey of a beloved family member and the family through the anguish, confusion, sorrow, and most of all the challenges faced with the oncoming and changing stages of Alzheimer's Disease. As a spouse of an Alzheimer's victim, I wish this book had been available 6 years ago, It would have helped even more than it has today. The author has given us all a new insight and awareness to this disease and shines a new more hopeful light on how to deal with this terrible disease. Even Medical Professionals could learn something from this book this book is a precursor to the delema we will be facing in ten years when some 14,000,000 boomers will be on the Alzheimers journey.

This book really spoke to me. My mother is suffering from Alzheimer's much like the Author's did. I am several states away from my parents and I could relate to Charlotte's brother who didn't live near their mother. I have 2 sisters that help care for my parents but I had been having problems understanding the disease and my sister's words about what was going on with my mother. This book gave me insite to what my sister might be feeling as well as somethings my own mother might yet go through. I purchased the book for my sister and called her just to talk to her. That is something I hadn't done for a long time. I suggest this book to anyone that has a loved one with Alzheimers.
