Chandler thought he could bring something new to the genre — his education, his literary background. Charles Dickens and Henry James, as well as Ernest Hemingway, were strong stylistic models for him. The Los Angeles that he took for his setting was undergoing changes prophetic for the rest of the nation. From 500,000 people in 1912, when Chandler arrived, the population shot up to 2.2 million in 1932. Where the first immigrants had been white Midwesterners, often retired farmers (like the Iowans whom Chandler often caricatured), later immigrants were Dust Bowl Okies, or Chinese and Mexicans and blacks, whom realtors cordoned off into specific neighborhoods. In 1909 L.A. had more churches per capita than any other large U.S. city, but by 1930 the boom in the movie industry, since "talkies" were in, attracted aspiring starlets, cowboy crooners, village Lotharios and small caliber Eastern Mafiosi. Orchards disappeared under tract housing and highways replaced village lanes. 7

When he finished his novel, now titled , it was longer and more socially conscious. His agents objected: "We feel that Mr. Marlowe would suspect his own softness all the way through and deride it and himself constantly." 20 Chandler was shocked. "I knew the character of Marlowe had changed…. But I did not realize [he] had become Christlike." 21 He rewrote immediately and extensively. "There is no doubt that Chandler intended to put all of himself into The Long Goodbye," writes biographer Frank MacShane, "He knew it was his last chance to do so." 22

An immediate critical and sales success, (1953) launched a new era in hard-boiled fiction – that of the socially, politically, racially, sexually, or environmentally conscious detective. Chandler did not revel in his success, however; after a long-planned trip to England with Cissy, her health declined – fibrosis of the lungs was the diagnosis – and she died in December 1954. She had been his one true love and an enduring chivalric ideal in his life; without her, there might not have been a Philip Marlowe. There was a void in Chandler's life, which he filled with drink, an attempted suicide, and more travel.

Unfortunately, that's not going to help further the dream of the single-family home. If anything, it's going to hurt it. As the need for housing increases, more neighborhoods will be zoned for apartments and condos. People will cry holy hell but in the end it'll happen anyway because people need places to live and because there's money to be made.
