Ross Macdonald Quote
It is usually unbearably painful to read a book by an author who knows way less than you do, unless the book is a novel.
The moon will guide you through the night with her brightness, but she will always dwell in the darkness, in order to be seen.
Shannon L. Alder
He shall rule, whom they look not for that dwell upon the earth, and the fowls shall take their flight away together:
Oh honey, someday a real man is going to make you see stars and you won't even be looking at the sky." Excerpt from Grace Willow's Last Minute Bride
Ross Macdonald was the main pseudonym used by the American-Canadian writer of crime fiction Kenneth Millar (; December 13, 1915 – July 11, 1983). He is best known for his series of hardboiled novels set in Southern California and featuring private detective Lew Archer. Since the 1970s, Macdonald's works (particularly the Archer novels) have received attention in academic circles for their psychological depth, sense of place, use of language, sophisticated imagery and integration of philosophy into genre fiction.Brought up in the province of Ontario, Canada, Macdonald eventually settled in the state of California, where he died in 1983.
