RCW Represents the Raymond Chandler Estate
We are delighted to announce that RCW and The Agency (London) Ltd have been asked to represent the Estate of Raymond Chandler. Together we will oversee the author’s work across publishing and all media with immediate effect.
Peter Straus says: ‘It is a real honour to be entrusted with the work of such a great writer. Raymond Chandler remains one of the defining writers of the Twentieth Century, he invented a style which has never been surpassed. His work has given pleasure to millions and I and my colleagues are determined to increase and extend that readership.’
Raymond Chandler was a highly successful and influential crime novelist known for such works as The Big Sleep, Farewell, My Lovely and The Long Goodbye, all of which were made into films. The Chandler Estate was previously managed by the late Ed Victor Literary Agency director Graham C Greene, and Ed Victor himself.
