So many great literary meetings have been lost to time. Here’s a fascinating one that wasn’t: Ian Fleming (master of the spy novel) discussing craft with Raymond Chandler (master of the hardboiled detective novel).
This is believed to be the only recording of Raymond Chandler’s voice.
Sit back, pour yourself something shaken not stirred, and enjoy!

A treat, thank you. I’ll enjoy this
Haha! “The tea and muffin style of writing.” Marvelous stuff.
Talking about the writing process is one of my favourite things to do. Hearing this from two that I admire is just great. Love it.
You’re welcome – glad to hear you enjoyed it!
