The Philip Marlowe audio files (mp3) from the Internet Radio Archives are a hoot. The writing is sharp and the similes Raymond Chandler (writer of the novels) uses will help you ramp up your own brainstorming on how to characterize quickly…and with humor.
My husband and I are heading for bed early, turning off the visual media and listening to old-time radio, trying to guess “who dunnit.”
Another radio series with sharp writing: Candy Matson, Girl Detective.
A relaxing way to wake up your perhaps sleeping similes.
