Autobiography for Quais du Polar
An effort to avoid doing homework turned Michael Connelly into a writer. One night 42 years ago at the University of Florida he shirked his responsibilities as an engineering student and went to the movies. He saw The Long Goodbye starring Elliott Gould and directed by Robert Altman. He loved the movie so much he decided to read the Raymond Chandler novel it was based on. He then loved the book so much he decided to stop going to engineering classes and read all of Chandler’s books. He loved the books so much he decided to forget engineering altogether and focus on becoming a writer. 42 years and 30 books later his favorite film noir is still The Long Goodbye, his favorite writer is still Chandler and, you guessed it, his favorite mystery novel is The Long Goodbye.
