Wise & Witty Things to Say About Hats #3

This time around, here’s Raymond Chandler – the quintessentially American crime writer who was educated at Dulwich College right here in London – taking us down the unexpectedly leafy literary side road of Ladies Hats…

How about this from The Little Sister (1949): [Describing the character Orfamay Quest]

“On the smooth brown hair was a hat that had been taken from its mother too young.”


Or this from Farewell, My Lovely (1940): [Describing the character Anne Riordan]

“She wore a hat with a crown the size of a whiskey glass and a brim you could have wrapped the week’s laundry in.”
